HIGH? A smoker walked into an abandoned house and found a tiger

The garage was secured in place with a screwdriver.

But once they arrived, police found a caged tiger in the home's garage, according to KTRK.

'The Houston Zoo is aware of the tiger found in southeast Houston today, February 11; however, the Houston Zoo is not involved in this case, and is not receiving the tiger, as incorrectly reported, ' it said.

Police in Houston, Texas, said that when the person called to report what they had seen on Monday, they thought the caller was hallucinating. They were trying to get into this house to smoke marijuana.

Some tigers are smuggled into the USA from Mexico, and there are small pockets of breeding facilities across the country. "They saw a tiger in this building, this vacant house that's obviously been abandoned for some time". The location isn't being made public while an investigation into who owns the tiger continues. Police did not confirm if an owner had been identified.




The tiger will be taken to BARC on Monday night.

"She is pretty large so she doesn't look underfed", Cottingham added, in an on-air news segment. "It's a lovely animal and we want it to live a happy healthy life".

Police said the tiger, which appeared well fed and in good health, is being taken to an undisclosed animal sanctuary.

"There was no concern about the tiger getting out of the cage", Cottingham said by telephone on Tuesday. "They can be extremely unsafe".

"This is not the first tiger that has been picked up by BARC", Cottingham said. They are endangered - the WWF estimates there are fewer than 4,000 left in the wild.
