March 6 (UPI) -- Police in Virginia said an apparent loose tiger that caused a "moment of shock" for an officer turned out to be a realistic statue.

The Prince William County Police Department asked business owners to use "caution" when "disposing of realistic, life-size animal statues."


The Facebook post included photos of what appears to be a tiger lurking behind a business.

"While on proactive patrol in a county shopping center, one of our officers experienced a moment of...uh...shock before realizing this little guy was harmless," the post said.
