Cops Respond To Reports Of “Large Predator” In Park. It Turns Out To Be…

A picture shared by Horsham Police on Twitter.

A British police department recently received reports of a “large apex predator” on the loose at a public park. When cops arrived at the park on Friday, however, a surprise awaited them.  

In a post shared on social media, Horsham Police department said its officers were summoned to a park in the Steyning area of West Sussex, UK, after receiving information about a big cat on the loose. The local police division – part of Sussex Police – arrived at the the scene and discovered what appeared, at first glance, to be a black panther climbing a bench.  

On closer inspection, however, they found the big cat was actually a stuffed toy.  

“Reports of a large apex predator in the Steyning area turned out to be true,” Horsham Police tweeted, sharing a picture of the realistic-looking toy and admitting that cops did not immediately realise that it wasn’t real. “It may be a stuffed toy, but the attending officers didn’t necessarily know that at first,” the department added.  

The incident has tickled many a funny bone on Twitter, where it was shared two days ago. 

“This should be enough proof that I really need to read the entire tweet before I look at the photo attached…” wrote one person in the comments section. 

“My god that looks real,” another said. 

This is not the first time that a stuffed toy has left responders confused. In 2018, police in Scotland called off a 45-minute ‘standoff’ with a tiger after realising that it was a stuffed toy.
