Organizers of the event took the theme a little too seriously as they brought a wild tiger in a cage to the premises.
"The event included jungle themed decorations and several animals were displayed in a very controlled situation, including a lemur, two macaws, an African fennec fox and a tiger", the statement read. Among them was a tiger in a cage.

In a statement shared online CCHS Principal David Pugh acknowledged students' concerns and apologized for the incident.
After seeing video of the animals on display, Ron Magill, curator for ZooMiami told the Miami Herald Sunday that he thinks the tiger was "obviously distressed". "He is stressed. The tiger is pacing up and down".
"Upon reflection, we regret the decision to have live animals at our prom". We will immediately evaluate our current policies and procedures regarding all school activities and events. "We all have learned a great deal from this experience".
