Someone reported a tiger walking along a B.C. street, but it was only this stuffed toy

‘Tiger’ spotted during busy morning commute in Surrey
Commuters were startled when they saw what looked like a tiger being walked along a busy street in Surrey Thursday morning.

Does B.C. have its own Tiger King?

Turns out, no.

Thursday morning someone reported to a local radio station that they had seen a person walking a live tiger along Fraser Highway between 148 and 152 streets in Surrey B.C.

When Global News arrived on scene they found someone walking a tiger but instead of a big cat, it was just a large stuffed toy.
