Police were called on Saturday 21 May after a concerned member of the public spotted (through the zoom lens of a camera) what looked to be an escaped white tiger hiding in a field.
Police became aware of the tigers lack of life when the down draft of a Police Helicopter caused the stuffed toy to roll over. Police said they did not know how it got there but was similar to one which would be won at a fair.
"The stuffed toy is being treated as lost property."
During the incident a nearby Golf Course had its members evacuated and a stopped play at the Rose Bowl cricket ground for 20 Minutes as a safety precaution.
"I assumed there was [a tiger] with everything that was going on, but we felt quite safe here."
