MIAMI (AP) — A Florida high school decided to take the jungle theme for prom a bit too seriously for some students.
Students, parents and teachers from Christopher Columbus High School took to social media to say that a wild tiger at last Friday’s prom was animal abuse. The Miami Herald reports that footage shows the tiger pacing inside a small enclosure as bright lights flashed around him.
Mari-Chris Castellanos, whose brother attends the all-boys private school, posted on Facebook and said the tiger “was used as an exotic amusement for the mindless teenagers who were present.”
