A guy took a leashed tiger into a busy bar on a Sunday evening and ordered a beer. When the bartender asked what the tiger would be drinking, the man replied, Anything he wants. At least that's how the old joke goes. Police aren't laughing either.

If I was one of the patrons and saw a tiger in the bar, I'd be wondering if there was something in the drink that was making me see things. Lol.

Stupid man - and poor tiger. This looks like it will end badly, and probably for the tiger rathe than for the idiot man...

Oh how stupid can someone be! Tigers are not pets and no animal would like to be taken to a crowded bar.

It sounds amusing but it isn't really. Bloke must be a nutter. Noted.

Ridiculous, especially when the tiger it appears had already bitten someone who did not bother reporting this to the police.

Tigers are wild animals and should not be anyone's 'pets'. Hopefully, this man won't get more than a mere slap on the wrist and the tiger goes to somewhere safe where the interests of the tiger are seen to.
