Tiger found overweight, abandoned in Houston home

The tiger was found in Houston in the Harrisburgh/Manchester area of the city.

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

Animal welfare officers found the tiger on Monday and called the Houston police in order to secure a warrant and remove the tiger.

The garage had been secured with a screwdriver and nylon strap, according to the police.

Cops quizzed the drug user, asking if they were high and if they were sure they'd actually seen a tiger.

'It was a pretty small cage inside basically a garage in a house that didn't look like it was in the best shape.

News of the tiger has created quite a buzz on social media, and reactions have even been curated into their own Twitter Moment titled "Overweight tiger found in abandoned U.S. home".

The tiger was taken to an animal shelter and will be transferred to an undisclosed animal sanctuary in Texas.

Officials say it could easily open and the tiger could have gone on a "rampage". Officials said the tiger will be taken to another facility, where it will stay permanently, Tuesday.

"People think that it is fun or that it is cool to have an exotic pet", Cottingham also said yesterday, USA Today reported. It's just finding the right combination and then transporting, ' Cottingham said to Click2Houston.

An anonymous tip from a "concerned citizen" led to the discovery of a tiger in a vacant home in Houston, Texas, on Monday. Packages of meat were discovered with the animal.

Houston Zoo told KPRC-TV it did not have the resources to give the animal a home. "Malayan tigers surviving on the Malay Peninsula are critically endangered with an estimated population of 300 remaining in the wild".
