Detroit Man Fails To Scare Tiger From Abandoned Warehouse With Garden Tool


Footage has emerged of a man attempting to scare a tiger out of an abandoned factory with a strimmer/weed whacker.

The tiger was brought to an abandoned Packard plant in Detroit by a British photographer for a shoot. Both a spokesman for the police and for the Packard Plant Project have said that the inclusion of the big cat hadn’t been cleared beforehand.

Apparently the photographer also brought a bobcat and a wolf with him.

The shoot was shut down, but the tiger managed to escape from its handlers, and took refuge in a stairwell. The man with the weed whacker was there to somehow coax the animal out with the garden tool’s loud noise.

The weed whacker did not coax the tiger out:

The animal was eventually recaptured.
