  • Very High Houston Resident Surprised To Find Live Tiger In Abandoned House

No one was home when the tiger was found. The "concerned citizen" called 311 to report the big cat, and "we questioned them as to whether they were under the effects of the drugs or they actually saw a tiger", a sergeant with the Houston Police Department's animal cruelty unit tells KTRK.

The tiger was insufficiently housed and left alone, but police said it was well-fed and appeared to be healthy.

"He's in a rinky-dink cage that could easily bust open".

The garage, which is in a home southeast of central Houston, was secured only with a screwdriver and a nylon strap, the station reported.

The animal was be taken to an animal shelter temporarily before being moved to a permanent home.

Houston Zoo said in a statement that it would not be able to take the tiger. Officials said the tiger will be taken to another facility, where it will stay permanently, Tuesday.

'There's an incredible network all across the United States and here in Houston and here in Texas. So it was important that we get it out of that situation, ' Lara Cottingham, with the city of Houston, said.

While it's legal to own a tiger in Texas if the owner has a wild game permit, it's not permitted in Houston. Packages of meat were discovered with the animal.

"Fewer than 3,500 tigers of all tiger subspecies remain in the wild today, according to the Tiger Conservation Campaign".
