Who owns that 'delightful' tiger, Houston officials ask

Tiger found overweight, abandoned in Houston home

The wild animal was first discovered by two people who entered the almost vacant house looking for a place to smoke marijuana, KHOU-TV reported officials as saying.

The couple who found the tiger called authorities to report what they had seen, and police said they were initially unsure if the animal was real or if they might be hallucinating.

Crews nicknamed the tiger "Tyson" from the movie "The Hangover", KHOU said, adding that officers said Tyson was well fed and in good shape but badly housed.

Police also described the cage as "rinky-dink", according to CBS, and said it had been secured with a screwdriver and a nylon strap.

A female tiger was found inside a vacant Houston home. Houston police are investigating who may have owned the animal.
