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.
