By Robert Paul Reyes

"Police in Britain say they want to locate the owner of a full-size toy tiger that had people calling authorities in fear a real wild animal was on the loose.

A resident of Hedge End, near Southampton, raised the alarm Saturday when he spotted what he thought was a real animal in a field though the telephoto lens of his camera, the BBC reported.

The police with high-tech gear and wildlife experts were mobilized for mortal combat with a stuffed animal, because a bloody perv with who was snooping with a camera equipped with a telephoto lens spied what he thought was a real tiger.

The owner of the toy tiger should receive a key to the city of Southampton for exposing the bumbling cops. Instead of dispatching a helicopter to the scene, the police captain should have sent a cop on a cruiser to check it out.

The real menace to Southampton isn`t the prankster who left a stuffed tiger in a field, it`s the bumbling cops and the perv with the cam.
