Parents outraged over caged tiger at Florida prom

The prom was held this year under the theme ‘Welcome to the jungle

The wild animal pacing uncomfortably in the small cage caused outrage.

Castellanos posted on her Facebook page "How shameful for Christopher Columbus High school ...showing its students on prom night who is the "king of the jungle " this poor tiger was used as an EXOTIC amusement for the mindless teenagers who were present".

"It is not the [students'] fault to be so naive BUT it's the CCHS staff who arranged this event", Castellanos wrote, adding: "They are responsible for the tiger's misery".

Some parents in Miami, Florida are angry after a tiger was brought to a high school's prom.

But the party took a odd turn when a handler wheeled out a caged tiger.

The school also released a statement to ABC station Local 10 defending the wild animal entertainment.

The private, all-boys college prep Catholic school defended its move, saying it had two police officers on-site and that the tiger was only present for "a few minutes".

Christopher Columbus High School, which held its annual senior dance at the Double Tree Hilton Miami Airport Convention Center on Friday, thought it was a good idea to let things get wild.

It's unclear what company supplied the animals for the event, and how often the company offers their animals for entertainment purposes.

The school said the hotel approved the tiger appearance.

The action was instantly met by anger by parents and students as they accused the organizers of animal abuse.

"When I saw this tiger being caged and surrounded by fire and teenagers taking photos and screaming and yelling, my first reaction was, who got down on one knee and asked this tiger to go to prom?" said Marie-Christine. "They don't need to be displayed as objects for our amusement... they don't have voices".

But Castellanos believes the animals didn't have to part of the prom experience. A facility that is licensed by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission provided the animals.

7News also reached out to the other companies that helped organize the phone, but they did not immediately reply to requests for comment.
