The garage was secured in place with a screwdriver.

Police say the animal was being kept in a cage that was not large or sturdy enough for its size with several packages of meat nearby, according to KTRK-TV.

The tiger and the cage it was in were moved to the city's animal control campus for the night after it was discovered in a house in southeast Houston on Monday, Bureau of Animal Regulation and Care spokeswoman Lara Cottingham said.

"Very, very rarely do we take in a tiger".

Some tigers are smuggled into the USA from Mexico, and there are small pockets of breeding facilities across the country.

Jason Alderete told KTRK-TV that the person who called 311 was asked if they were under the effects of drugs or actually saw a tiger. "She was thirsty and wasn't especially threatening [but] they did tranquilize her just before they transported her".

A couple thought they might be hallucinating after sneaking into a vacant Texas home to smoke weed - and finding a tiger inside.

"We made arrangements for the tiger to be transferred to another facility that is licensed to handle exotic pets", said Heidi Krahn, executive director of the Center for Animal Research & Education. It has two Malayan tigers and "does not have capacity to receive additional tigers", a statement read.

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