On Sunday night, residents of a Houston suburb looked down their quiet street to see an abnormally large cat stalking their well manicured lawns:
"Why is there a tiger???" 😂
Another angle (language warning for this one):
The gentleman confronting the tiger in this video was an off-duty deputy, but it could have been anyone because this is Texas and everyone has a pistol:
Residents quickly noticed that the tiger had a collar and was likely someone's pet. That assumption was proved correct a few minutes later when the tiger's owner came and rescued it from the cowboy who was about to make it into a nice living-room rug:
Take a moment to appreciate the beauty of this photo. This is almost as "Texas" as it gets:
If you're wondering, it is legal for Texans to own tigers (because freedom), but it's not legal within Houston city limits.
The tiger's owner reportedly got in a car and fled with the tiger before police could show up. His whereabouts are still unknown.
