Man Calls 911 On a Stuffed Tiger
Connor Zuvich, 19, says he was with friends when one of them dumped bags of trash, including a stuffed orange-and-black striped tiger. They got the idea to strap it to the top of Zuvich’s car. Evidently, the stuffed tiger was realistic enough that it fooled a 911 caller. The caller matter-of-factly told a dispatcher “I just came from Lacamas Lake and there’s a couple of guys in a dark truck. It has a Bengal tiger laying beside it, it was wagging its tail and they were rubbing its side. At first I thought, well it must be a big stuffed animal and then it started moving and it wasn’t stuffed.” He should have gone with his first impulse. When authorities tracked down the tiger, it was, in fact, a stuffed animal. Get more here.
Drunk Man Posed as Police Officer and Attempted to Free his Friend
Police in China released CCTV video of a drunken man posing as an officer in an attempt to secure the release of a friend, who turned out not to be in custody.

Police said the friend the suspect was attempting to free turned out not to be among those arrested in the sting. Get more here.
