Police say someone who went to an abandoned home in southeast Houston to smoke marijuana, ended up discovering a tiger inside of it.

Houston Police Department's Major Offenders, Livestock Animal Cruelty Unit arrived on scene and found a 1,000-pound tiger inside.

The cage that kept the animal enclosed was not large or sturdy enough for such a creature of that size.

While the home was abandoned, several packages of meat were found with the animal.

"A concerned citizen called 311. They were trying to get into this house to smoke marijuana. We questioned them as to whether they were under the effects of the drugs or they actually saw a tiger. They saw a tiger in this building, this vacant house that's obviously been abandoned for some time," said Sgt. Jason Alderete, of HPD's Major Offenders, Livestock Animal Cruelty Unit.

Once officers arrived and saw the animal, the challenge was to get it out.

First, they tranquilized the tiger and they brought in a wrecker to help get the large cat out.

Meanwhile, a crowd gathered to watch it all.

Once the wrecker got the tiger out of a driveway, it was loaded onto a trailer where it was expected to be taken to BARC.
