BRYANT, Ark. - An Arkansas police department got a disturbing call this week that someone had spotted a dead tiger on the side of the road.

Police said the truth turned out to be much...fuzzier.

Bryant Police said on Sept. 8 they received a call that someone spotted a dead tiger on a service road near the town. The caller said she stopped to take pictures of the animal, but she was too scared to get near it.

A Bryant officer went out to locate the tiger, and instead found an abandoned stuffed animal.

The Bryant Police's Facebook page said the officer was kind enough to give the tiger a ride back to the station. There's no word if the "tiger" has been adopted or not.
