Police: Pot smokers find caged tiger


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.

Officials tell KHOU-TV the tiger was well fed, and the cage was secured by a nylon strap and screwdriver.

Officials say it could easily open and the tiger could have gone on a “rampage.”

The tiger was taken to an animal shelter, then it was transferred to an animal sanctuary on Tuesday.
