  • Tiger found overweight, abandoned in Houston home

"A concerned citizen called 311".

A pothead who sneaked into an abandoned home in Houston to toke up made a wild discovery - a fully grown tiger locked in a cage.

Despite being relatively calm for a tiger in its situation, it had to be tranquilised so animal rescue officers could get it out of the house safely.

The organization confirmed online it is illegal to own a tiger inside city of Houston limits.

Animal welfare officers found the tiger on Monday and called the Houston police in order to secure a warrant and remove the tiger. "It wasn't the effects of the drugs".

"She seems to be in good spirits, was really thirsty when they found her, she's not causing a ruckus, but we eagerly anticipating the vets to get here so they can give her the proper medical care, food she probably wants", Cottingham said on Tuesday.

Emery defiant as leaky Arsenal fail to convince again
Arsenal have more than one way of qualifying for the top four, the Premier League as well as winning the UEFA Europa League . Lacazette was on the scoresheet for Arsenal , but conceded the Gunners need to make more chances.

A picture of the tiger was shared by Houston's BARC animal shelter.

In a statement, the Houston Zoo said it will not be able to take the tiger.

Officials say it could easily open and the tiger could have gone on a "rampage". "Very, very rarely do we take in a tiger".

It was not immediately clear how long the tiger had been living at the depalitated residence.

While the unexpected human-tiger encounter ended happily, authorities said it could have been much bloodier given the crude nature of the tiger's enclosure. "Malayan tigers surviving on the Malay Peninsula are critically endangered with an estimated population of 300 remaining in the wild".
