I'm not sure it is a tiger moth. The pics I have found don't seem quite right. This one was more like a tuft of hair fell off a bear and started crawling around. It seemed to have long outer hair ana short under hair.

I'm not sure if I got the exact species, I tried as much as I could though.

Some form of Tiger moth caterpillar I believe.
