"He's in a rinky-dink cage that could easily bust open", said a police spokesman.

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

"The tiger was very thirsty, so we gave him some water", said Jarrad Mears with Houston animal shelter BARC.

Several packages of meat were found with the animal, KTRK reported.

Houston police say some people who went into an abandoned home to smoke marijuana found a caged tiger.

The tiger was insufficiently housed and left alone, but police said it was well-fed and appeared to be healthy.

Some of the students made clear that they perceive global warming as an apocalyptic concern. "I definitely support this movement". The proponents of the deal aim to phase the country off fossil fuels and nuclear energy in 10 years.

Despite being relatively calm for a tiger in its situation, it had to be tranquilised so animal rescue officers could get it out of the house safely.

BARC officers found the tiger on Monday. We questioned them as to whether they were under the effects of the drugs or they actually saw a tiger. However, according to KHOU, an animal sanctuary in Texas has agreed to take it in.

There is an ongoing investigation into who owns the house and how the tiger got in there, she said.

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

It's legal to own a tiger in Texas if the owner has a wild game permit but it's illegal to have one in Houston and Tyson's owner, if found, could face a hefty fine. "They can be extremely unsafe". "Malayan tigers surviving on the Malay Peninsula are critically endangered with an estimated population of 300 remaining in the wild".
