Grand Rapids animal control worker 'rescues' city from tiger

Kent County Animal Control Supervisor Joe Dainelis arrived on the scene, grabbed his safety gear and approached the animal with care.

But when his co-worker Rachel Jensen advanced from another direction, she realized that the dangerous beast was just a life-sized, realistic-looking stuffed animal.

The officers enjoyed a laugh and posted some amusing photos for the public to see on their Facebook page.

Dainelis said he expects to be teased by his co-workers for a few days.
