  • An overweight tiger was found abandoned in a Houston home on Monday

Despite being relatively calm for a tiger in its situation, it was tranquilised so officers could get it out of the house safely.

An anonymous tipster reported seeing the animal about a week ago, according to BARC.

The cage holding the tiger was being held shut but a nylon strap and a screwdriver, reports KHOU.

The tiger was found in a "rinky-dink" cage in the garage, which was not locked, police said.

If you say you're high and that you've seen a tiger in a Houston, Texas, home, the police are going to have a few questions. Officials said the location will not be public at this time, since they're still investigating the incident.

The woman called 311, the city's non-emergency hotline. Whoever's tiger this is will have to go visit them at their new home.

The city doesn't have the facilities or resources to take care of a tiger, which typically eats up to 11 kilograms a day.

The owner of the tiger is still a mystery, and they could face a hefty fine if they're found.

He noted several packages of meat were found at the house.

The Houston Zoo said it will not be able to take the tiger. "Malayan tigers surviving on the Malay Peninsula are critically endangered with an estimated population of 300 remaining in the wild", the statement added. "If you have a child, you have insurance but these guys don't have insurance", she said. It's unsafe for them to have (a tiger down the street).
