There’s nothing wrong with a jungle theme for prom. That is, until you start adding friends FROM the jungle to the proceedings..
On Friday night, students and family members of Christopher Columbus High School in Miami, Florida were horrified to discover that, among the special guests at the ‘Welcome To The Jungle’ prom, was a caged tiger.
Oh, there were MORE creatures. A fennec fox. A lemur. Two macaw parrots. But it was the tiger that many said was “obviously stressed” by the experience.
The school said in a statement on Sunday that the tiger was not harmed by the experience. Even so, Principal David Pugh released his own statement on Monday morning, apologizing for the stunt at the event which took place at the Double Treet by Hilton Hotel in Miami.
Dumb, dumb, dumb. Let’s stick with decorations and props and leave the live animals where they belong, shall we? ~ Jason
