Florida is crazy enough as is. One high school in Miami figured that the one way they had to have a lit prom? Get live animals.

Including a tiger.

Miami’s Christopher Columbus High School held a themed prom titled “Welcome To The Jungle” with several exotic animals in attendance such as a lemur, two macaws, an African fennec fox and a tiger.

Students watched in awe as the tiger was rolled into the middle of prom last Friday but people already knew something was amiss. “That tiger was in distress. The reason he’s pacing up and down, up and down, with his tail going and his ears all folded back, is showing you distress,” Maria Castellanos, a Columbus HS parent said.

The school had to issue a statement, “The tiger, which was displayed for a few minutes in a cage was never harmed or in danger, was not forced to perform, was always accompanied by his handlers… and for the great majority of the time was laying down in a relaxed state facing away from the audience.”

Yeah, that’s going a little too hard for prom, my friends.
