HOUSTON, Tx. (KPRC) — A tiger found Monday at an abandoned Houston, Texas, home is expected to be transported to her permanent home Tuesday, according to police. 

Police said the caged female tiger was found after an anonymous tipster reported seeing the animal about a week ago.

The tipster said he was at the house to smoke marijuana and thought he was hallucinating when they first saw the tiger, according to police.

The tiger was found in a “rinky-dink” cage in the garage, which was not locked. The garage was secured with a screwdriver and a nylon strap.
