Who owns that 'delightful' tiger, Houston officials ask

The garage was secured in place with a screwdriver.

An anonymous tipster discovered the 1,000-pound tiger illegally held in a residential home, according to Houston's KTRK-TV.

The female tiger was found in a cage with several packets of meat.

A BARC Animal Shelter crew responded to the home with the Houston police's Major Offender Animal Cruelty Unit and tranquilized the tiger, nicknamed "Tyson" by rescuers after the famous scene in The Hangover featuring boxer Mike Tyson's tiger.

They were in the house to smoke marijuana - but this was no drug trip. Officials said the tiger will be taken to another facility, where it will stay permanently, Tuesday.

News of the tiger has created quite a buzz on social media, and reactions have even been curated into their own Twitter Moment titled "Overweight tiger found in abandoned United States home". Police did not confirm if an owner had been identified.

"This is not the first tiger that has been picked up by BARC", Cottingham said.
