Cannabis smoker finds tiger in abandoned house in Texas

Cannabis smoker finds tiger in abandoned house in Texas

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

They called the city on Monday and the major offender animal cruelty unit and animal shelter volunteers arrived on the scene.

Animal law enforcement nicknamed the big cat "Tyson" in honor of the movie "The Hangover", where the characters found a tiger in their hotel room after a particularly wild night of drinking.

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

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

A stoner couple entered an abandoned house in Houston to get high, but almost became prey when they stumbled across a live tiger. "He could have gone on a rampage in the city. anything could have happened!"

Not only did the event go smoothly, but the general consensus was that it was one of the game's best events yet. If you're on Pacific time, then the Fortnite Marshmello encore will take place at 11pm on Saturday, February 2.

But after obtaining a warrant, they found a 25-stone female tiger in deplorable conditions in the house in Houston, Texas.

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 U.S. home".

It is now being transferred to a sanctuary elsewhere in Texas - although the exact location has not been publicly disclosed.

Neighbors were none too pleased to discover the danger that had lurked near them for an unknown amount of time.

'It was a pretty small cage inside basically a garage in a house that didn't look like it was in the best shape. "My kids ... the neighbor has kids, so, it's scary". "She was thirsty and wasn't especially threatening [but] they did tranquilize her just before they transported her".
