Michigan animal control workers received a call Thursday about a tiger in the driveway of a vacant home in Grand Rapids.

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.

Watch the clip above.
