Four schoolboys who made separate hoax calls about a tiger on the loose on a mini golf course in Siebentischwald near Augsburg in Germany have been charged with wasting police time.
The four each called police telling them the same story, and officers believing the account was genuine with so many eyewitnesses sent seven patrol cars to the area - and called in the fire brigade and a police helicopter. The area was also evacuated and a warning put out on local radio.
The teens now aged between 15 and 19 face charges for making hoax calls and wasting police time. Rescue workers are also demanding the costs of the action be refunded by the youngsters.
Seven police vans as well as a helicopter with heat seeking cameras as well as fire men were involved in the search. The local area was evacuated and radio warnings sent out warning people of the big cat on the loose.
At least one of the boys accused of organising the stunt faces up to a year in prison.
