Texas man enters abandoned home to smoke weed, finds tiger instead

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

Police said a group of people broke into an abandoned Houston home to smoke marijuana and quickly discovered they weren't alone - there was a tiger in the house.

Animal law enforcement nicknamed the big cat "Tyson" in honor of the movie "The Hangover", where the characters found a tiger in their hotel room after a particularly wild night of drinking.

The building, in the 9400 block of East Avenue J., was being used to house a large female tiger in a "rinky-dink" cage in the garage, KPRC-TV reported, citing police.

Officials say it could have easily opened and the tiger could have gone on a "rampage".

Cottingham said the tiger, which she's calling Danielle, seemed fairly healthy, albeit a bit thirsty.

On Tuesday, an undisclosed animal sanctuary in Texas will transport Tyson to his new home.

Jason Alderete told KTRK-TV that the person who called 311 was asked if they were under the effects of drugs or actually saw a tiger.

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

Neighbors were none too pleased to discover the danger that had lurked near them for an unknown amount of time.

The tiger, at least, is in good health and good spirits since its rescue, according to Lara Cottingham, chief of staff for Houston's Administration and Regulatory Affairs Department. "My kids. the neighbor has kids, so, it's scary".

Authorities could sentence the owner of the tiger with an expensive fine if they identify them.
