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

A tiger was recovered from an abandoned home in Houston, Texas, this week after being spotted by a person looking for a place to smoke marijuana, police say.

Police said the caged female tiger was found at a home in the 9400 block of East Avenue J. "They saw a tiger in this building, this vacant house that's obviously been abandoned for some time", said Sergeant Jason Alderete of Houston Police. However, according to KHOU, an animal sanctuary in Texas has agreed to take it in. The garage was secured with a screwdriver and a nylon strap, according to police.

She was friendly, police said, but she was tranquilised for safety reasons as they moved her from the home over to BARC's headquarters.

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

"He's in a rinky-dink cage that could easily bust open", said a police spokesman.

Some tigers are smuggled into the United States from Mexico, and there are small pockets of breeding facilities across the country.

"We made arrangements for the tiger to be transferred to another facility that is licensed to handle exotic pets", said Heidi Krahn, executive director of the Center for Animal Research & Education. It's just finding the right combination and then transporting, ' Cottingham said to Click2Houston.

The cage that kept the animal was not large or sturdy enough to hold the tiger, the station reported.

Houston Zoo told KPRC-TV it did not have the resources to give the animal a home.

"The Houston Zoo is home to two Malayan tigers, Berani and Satu, and does not have capacity to receive additional tigers".
