MIAMI (1010 WINS) -- The theme for the senior prom at Christopher Columbus High School in Miami was 'Welcome To The Jungle.'

The school went all out and even had a tiger in a small cage. While many people at the prom seemed to have a good time, it was obvious that the tiger did not.

Video shows the tiger pacing as bright lights flashed around him. Critics hit the outrage button on Twitter and called it animal abuse.

School administrators said the hotel where the prom was being held signed off on the tiger and handlers were there the whole time. They said the tiger spent most of the night lying down and facing away from prom-goers.
