Mike Skinner – tiger thief!

The Streets man comes clean over German big cat

Mike Skinner has apologised for stealing a tiger while in Germany.

The Streets man admitted he had taken the giant stuffed animal on March 10.

“Apologies to the German authorities,” he wrote on his band’s website The-streets.co.uk. “The tiger was stolen from a motorway service station at approximately 3am the other night between Hamburg and Koln I think, or maybe it was between Hamburg and Berlin. My facts aren’t sure.”

Skinner then explained that he liberated the furry beast after feeling sorry for it.

“He was looking very lonely on the top shelf next to the porn and engine oil,” explained the rapper, adding that he was hoping for some sort of tiger amnesty.

“The guy didn’t see him jacked from the store and we understand that he was worth 200 euros,” confessed Skinner. “If you get in contact maybe we can return Tony (as we have named him) in exchange for amnesty from deportation and/or criminal charges being pressed.”
