Officers with the Houston Police Department responded to a 311 caller stating that they had discovered a tiger in a cage in an abandoned building.
"I was just wondering if I have, like, uh, somebody who I know who has a pet tiger in their house, and I was just wondering if I could, like, make an anonymous call for that, to get that tiger safe," the caller said.
"It's not even a baby tiger, like, it's pretty big," the caller said.
The tiger was in a cage that it could have easily destroyed, according to reports. It was secured with a nylon strap and a screw driver.
According to KTRK-TV, the tiger was nicknamed "Tyson" after Mike Tyson's appearance in the movie, "The Hangover" in which he owned a tiger.
