Tasha the Amazon and Bengal tiger on prowl in Toronto

Something much bigger than the usual raccoons was prowling the streets of Toronto early this morning. 

A large Bengal tiger, accompanied by its handlers and rapper Tasha the Amazon, took part in a video shoot for the new single Through the Fire. 

Tasha and the ferocious feline were seen roaming the Kensington Market neighbourhood in downtown Toronto. 

It’s not the first time the Toronto rapper has worked with big and potentially dangerous animals.

An earlier video shoot in the Everglades saw her mingle with alligators.

“This is kind of on par with that,” Tasha told CBC News. “Maybe a little less dangerous because we have the handlers.”
