Cannabis smoker finds tiger in abandoned house in Texas

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

Houston police sergeant Jason Alderete told local media outlet KTRK-TV: "A concerned citizen called 311".

Police said a group of people broke into an abandoned Houston home to smoke marijuana and quickly discovered they weren't alone - there was a tiger in the house.

Officials tell KHOU-TV the tiger was well fed, but the cage was secured by a nylon strap and screwdriver. They were trying to get into this house to smoke marijuana.

A female tiger was found inside a vacant Houston home.

Houston police obtained a warrant to enter the home and on Monday, BARC animal enforcement officers retrieved the tiger, the shelter said in a Facebook post.

Cops quizzed the drug user, asking if they were high and if they were sure they'd actually seen a tiger. "She was thirsty and wasn't especially threatening [but] they did tranquilize her just before they transported her". However, it's illegal to have one in the city of Houston.

Houston Zoo said in a statement that it would not be able to take the tiger.

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

It is unclear what charges the owner of the house may face now. If the owner is ever found, they could face a big fine.

Officials said the tiger will be taken to the BARC animal shelter at 3300 Carr St. BARC will be the tiger's temporary home. "Malayan tigers surviving on the Malay Peninsula are critically endangered with an estimated population of 300 remaining in the wild".
