DETROIT – A live tiger was spotted at the old Detroit Packard Plant Monday.

The tiger was brought there for a photo shoot, but was not cleared to be at the Packard Plant by the facility's owner.

"There's never been a situation where we've had to shut down a shoot," said Kari Smith, Packard Plant director of development. "There's never been a situation where we've had any kind of animals on site."

The tiger, along with a wolf and a bobcat, were accompanied by a trainer.
