Worried Bruce Grubb, 24, who reported the fearsome big cat lurking on his farm near Peterhead, said: “I got the fright of my life.”



He called in armed officers when he spotted the striped creature crouched on a ramp in the animals’ barn.

When police arrived, they stayed safely inside their vehicles during a tense hour-long stand-off as they tried to work out how best to tackle the beast.

But Bruce began to grow suspicious when the ‘tiger’ didn’t move.

3. Having spent lots of nights checking pregnant mares

That would scare the shit out of me!

The main give away though is the cow calmly lying down only a few yards away from the "tiger" - close to foaling my mares would not allow our dogs or cats in their foaling pasture.

The mares would run down canines - I once watched a fox almost get stomped by my mares. I also had a mare run OVER me to go after our dog that she was normally friendly with. I also had a cat attacked by a mare with a new born foal - she picked the poor cat up and threw it about thirty feet. (The cat had no broken bones, but showed up with a hernia from one hip to the other that had to be sewn up.)
