KINGSTON, Tenn., Oct. 14 (UPI) -- A pair of former workers at a Tennessee big cat sanctuary admitted to being naked on the premises but denied running naked through the facility.

Jake Loftis, 22, and Samuel Adams, 26, who lived at Tiger Haven in Kingston and worked as cat keepers, said they were drinking beer naked on their porch Sept. 16 as a protest against their recent firing, the Knoxville (Tenn.) News Sentinel reported Thursday.

However, the pair denied a claim in a police report that they "ran nude around the complex exposing themselves to co-workers."

The men said only one co-worker spotted them while they were naked on the porch of the trailer they shared at the sanctuary.

Adams admitted to ripping a railing off the porch after he had been drinking.

"I got drunk, and I got stupid, to be honest," Adams said.

The men said they plan to plead guilty to indecent exposure and vandalism charges.
