Tiger at High School Prom Draws Controversy

A few unexpected prom guests at a Miami high school are drawing some outrage.  

The theme of this year's Christopher Columbus High School prom was "Welcome to the Jungle."  That's apparently why the school paid to have a caged tiger brought out to Friday's event, along with birds, a lemur and a fox.  

Some students expressed concern that the tiger was stressed out and uncomfortable with the entire situation. 

 One girl told reporters she felt the animal was suffering for entertainment.  The school defended the use of the animals, noting that they were overseen by licensed handlers and not forced to perform.
