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, which is in a home southeast of central Houston, was secured only with a screwdriver and a nylon strap, the station reported. Packages of meat were discovered with the animal. "More often than not it gets big, it gets expensive, it gets risky, and they end up turning the animal in or abandoning it".

And that's because tigers don't make for great pets, Krahn said.

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

The home had been abandoned for some time, Alderete said.

"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".

The shelter, which takes in more than 26,000 animals each year, is still trying to find a long-term facility to take the tiger.

While it's legal to own a tiger in Texas if the owner has a wild game permit, it's not permitted in Houston. "More often than not it gets big, it gets expensive, it gets risky, and they end up turning the animal in or abandoning it".

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