Golf: Englishman Paisley takes clubhouse lead in Malaysia

  Golf: Englishman Paisley takes clubhouse lead in Malaysia Englishman Chris Paisley struck a spotless seven-under-par 65 in hot and humid conditions to take the clubhouse lead on a weather-hit opening day of the Maybank Championship on Thursday. An hour and 50 minutes of play was lost due to the threat of storms in the afternoon and 40 players will have to return at the Saujana Golf and Country Club in Shah Alam to complete their first round on Friday. Frenchman Mike Lorenzo-Vera was on six-under with two holes left to complete, alongside another Englishman, David Horsey, who recovered from an opening bogey to end on six-under.

A Facebook group -- UK Cop Humor -- shared photos of the stuffed animal and poked fun at the officers who reported to the farm.

"Nervous radio updates start coming in stating it was unclear if the Tiger has eaten any cattle but it appeared well fed and it’s ears were seen to twitch but other than that it was very settled," the post said. "After some time a rather sheepish sounding Sergeant comes on the air and declares that it was indeed a stuffed toy!"

Home Fox News Toy tiger sparks standoff with Scottish police . Armed police stormed a farm after receiving a report of a tiger on the loose. The caller didn’t mention how cuddly and adorable it was.

Police have 45-minute standoff with toy tiger . The investigation was sparked by a Las Vegas Review-Journal story showing Mitchell wrote himself ,000 in checks, used ATMs at casinos and video poker bars, and traveled to places his adult children live.

Authorities said they received the “unusual” call late Saturday and decided to verify the potential danger.

“It’s true – our officers had a roaring shift on Saturday night,” the North East Police Division posted on Facebook.

According to the Scottish Sun, the incident began when farmer Bruce Grubb, 24, when out to the barn to check on his pregnant cows. He soon spotted what he thought was a real tiger and called the police.

"I had absolutely no doubt it was real," Grubb told the newspaper. "I got a hell of a scare. I was worried it was going to eat all my cows before police managed to shoot it."

Once police arrived, the cops had a nearly hour-long standoff with the alleged wild beast -- that is until Grubb approached with his truck, only to discover it was a stuffed toy.

"I was stone cold sober, drink had nothing to do with me thinking it was real," Grubb told The Sun.

Peterhead Inspector George Cordiner said in post on Facebook it is standard practice to send out armed officers to any “potential threat,” adding they “were not deployed nor required.”

"Our ultimate aim is to protect the public and keep our officers safe when faced with uncertain situations,” he continued. “Until you know exactly what you are dealing with, every option has to be considered.”

It's unclear who owns the stuffed tiger.

“We appreciate that it was a false call made with genuine good intent," Cordiner said.
