Tiger Roams Free in Texas Neighborhood

The owner of a tiger that had been strolling around a Texas neighborhood has been arrested according to an NBC 5 DFW article from May 11th which states,

“A man whose tiger was found wandering around a Houston neighborhood Sunday night has been arrested, police say. The tiger’s whereabouts are still unknown.

A neighbor says families spotted the tiger lounging in the front yard of a home while out on an evening walk.

Video of the encounter shows the tiger walking toward a Waller County sheriff’s deputy who lives in the neighborhood.”

Texas seems to have a history of tigers getting out and roaming around neighborhoods according to another NBC 5 DFW article from February 24th, 2021 which reports,

“A six-month-old, 60-pound pet tiger found during winter weather last week near San Antonio has a new home in Henderson County.

The Humane Society of the U.S. said the tiger was found wearing a harness, indicating she was someone’s pet, and was placed at a local wildlife rehab center until the weather warmed up enough for her to be transferred.

The tiger, now named Elsa, is now living at the Cleveland Armory Black Beauty Ranch in Murchison.”

There are strict rules which govern the owning of an exotic animal as a pet in Texas. The animals must be registered with the city or county animal control office, but it is left up to local government to enforce these rules and either regulate or ban this practice.
