"We questioned them as to whether they were under the effects of the drugs or they actually saw a tiger", Sgt. Jason Alderete of the Houston Police Department's Major Offenders, Livestock Animal Cruelty Unit told CNN affiliate KTRK. It was secured with a nylon strap and a screwdriver for the top of the cage. It is now on its way to an undisclosed animal sanctuary while officers try to find its owner. But several packages of meat were found with the animal, KTRK reported. "More often than not it gets big, it gets expensive, it gets risky, and they end up turning the animal in or abandoning it".

The tiger was tranquilized in order to move it out of the house, officials said. "They saw a tiger in this building, this vacant house that's obviously been abandoned for some time". They called Houston police, who were able to secure a warrant and remove the tiger. An investigation remains ongoing.

Agency spokeswoman Lara Cottingham told the Houston Chronicle that a wildlife refuge would take the tiger on Tuesday.

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.

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

"Fewer than 3,500 tigers of all tiger subspecies remain in the wild today, according to the Tiger Conservation Campaign".
