MIAMI, Fla. (WDRB) - Some parents in Miami, Florida are angry after a tiger was brought to a high school's prom.

The exotic animal was rolled into the prom inside a cage.

A spokesperson for the high school says, "the tiger, which was displayed for a few minutes in a cage was never harmed or in danger."

Cell phone video online shows the tiger pacing in the cage as performers used fire to entertain the graduating class.

Parent Maria Castellanos said, "That tiger was in distress. The reason he's pacing up and down, up and down, with his tail going and his ears all folded back, is showing you distress."

Other pictures from the prom showed different animals used as centerpieces.
