A school has been criticised after a live caged tiger was unveiled to Florida students at their prom.
Christopher Columbus High School in Miami hosted its jungle-themed prom at a Hilton hotel on Friday.
Concerns for the tiger’s welfare have been growing on social media, with thousands of people taking to Twitter, Facebook and Reddit.
The school principal has apologised for causing offence, saying he has learned from the experience.
One student’s sister, Mari-Cris Castellanos, posted a video on Facebook of the caged tiger at the event.
