Not a hallucination in Texas

The Houston Police Department said the people called the 311 non-emergency line Monday when they broke into the southeast Houston home, which was believed to be unoccupied, and discovered a tiger in a cage.

The wild animal was first discovered by two people who entered the almost vacant house looking for a place to smoke marijuana, KHOU-TV reported officials as saying.

A couple thought they might be hallucinating after sneaking into a vacant Texas home to smoke weed - and finding a tiger inside.

The tiger was taken to a BARC shelter where it will remain until a long-term solution is found.

Police also described the cage as "rinky-dink", according to CBS, and said it had been secured with a screwdriver and a nylon strap.

'The Houston Zoo is aware of the tiger found in southeast Houston today, February 11; however, the Houston Zoo is not involved in this case, and is not receiving the tiger, as incorrectly reported, ' it said.

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

'It was a pretty small cage inside basically a garage in a house that didn't look like it was in the best shape. "She was thirsty and wasn't especially threatening [but] they did tranquilize her just before they transported her. So it was important that we get it out of that situation", Lara Cottingham, with the city of Houston, told the NBC Houston. "Very, very rarely do we take in a tiger". The location isn't being made public while an investigation into who owns the tiger continues.

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