A fellow who walked into an abandoned home in Houston, Texas to smoke weed was surprised to see a caged tiger in the garage. Fortunately, he called police.
"We questioned them as to whether they were under the effects of the drugs or they actually saw a tiger," said Sgt. Jason Alderete of the Houston Police Department's Major Offenders, Livestock Animal Cruelty Unit.
The tiger was found in a "rinky-dink" cage in the garage, which was not locked, police said. The garage was secured with a screwdriver and a nylon strap, according to police.
"A pretty small cage inside basically a garage in a house that didn't look like it was in the best shape. So it was important that we get it out of that situation," Lara Cottingham, with the city of Houston, said.
According to the Houston Chronicle, the tiger will be moved today to a wildlife refuge.

Hey, we love Netflix and Hulu, but let’s face it: The whole setup doesn’t exactly encourage active viewing. For all the binge-watching we’ve done, it’s tough to expand our horizons or learn anything new – except for how many episodes of “The Office” it takes to make us fall asleep. It was only a matter […]
