DETROIT- A UK photography crew was kicked out of Detroit’s Packard Automotive Plant on Monday after their tiger got loose.

Packard Plant director of development Kari Smith said the crew had permission to be inside the plant for a photo shoot, but they did not mention the tiger, bobcat and wolf.

“This is not something that we would allow to happen here,” Smith told MLive.com. “This is not something that we condone in any way.”

Andy Didorosi of Detroit posted video to Facebook on Monday that apparently shows a man trying to scare the tiger with a weed wacker.

Detroit police told Fox 2 Detroit the tiger was captured.
