The affected citizen claimed to have moved into an abandoned house in Houston, Texas, to smoke a pot and find a tiger.
So, of course, the authorities were suspicious.
Officials calmed the big cat, pulled it out with a destroyer, and took it to a shelter.
"We have made arrangements to move the tiger to another facility approved for handling exotic pets," said Heidi Krahn, director of the Center for Animal Research and Education, to KTRK Tiger, " she said.
That's because tigers are not great pets, said Krahn.
"They are basically a loaded weapon aimed at anyone who hits them," she said can be extremely dangerous. "
The case is under investigation and it is unclear whether the owner is being charged.
