A man trying to get into an abandoned Houston house to smoke weed was surprised to find a gigantic female tiger inside.
The man told police he thought he might be hallucinating, but the tiger was indeed discovered in an unlocked cage.
Estimates of the weight of the tiger range from 400 to 1,000 pounds.
The tiger was tranquilized and taken to a local animal shelter, and has since secured a forever home.

A man went into an abandoned house in Houston to smoke weed, and he thought he was hallucinating when he came across a gigantic female tiger.

Sgt. Jason Alderete from Houston Police Department’s Major Offenders/Livestock Animal Cruelty Unit said that a “concerned citizen” called police when he was “trying to get into this house to smoke marijuana” and spotted a tiger inside — though he thought he might be hallucinating.

According to ABC 13 in Houston, he added: “We questioned them as to whether they were under the effects of the drugs or they actually saw a tiger. They saw a tiger in this building, this vacant house that’s obviously been abandoned for some time.”

Local news site Click2Houston reported that officers from BARC Animal Selter found the tiger in the garage of the house on Monday.

Reporter Lauren Talarico from location TV station KHOU tweeted a video of the tiger in its cage.

This is WILD! 1000lb tiger found inside abandoned SE Houston home. Some pot smokers went in to home to light up and came face to face with him! Called 311. He’s healthy and onto greener pastures soon. The place is TBD. #khou11 #tiger #houston #htx pic.twitter.com/n4JC5MraYn
