MCMINN COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -- It's not unusual to spot a deer while driving down the Interstate in East Tennessee, but a tiger?

A man thought he saw a tiger near the southbound lanes of I-75 near mile marker 53.

It turns out, there was a tiger and a small cub watching cars pass by. The animals were "stuffed", however.

McMinn County 911 received several similar calls from motorist who fell for what appears to be a prank.

The 911 Center did send a Deputy to the scene just to make sure the animals weren't real.

The tiger and cub were still watching drivers pass by when the sun went down Monday night.

No word about who may have put them there.
