WATCH: A Tiger got loose in a Houston neighborhood and a heroic off duty police officer saved the day.

A tiger roaming around your neighborhood is something you don’t see normally unless your name is Joe Exotic or Carole Baskin.  So yesterday when a tiger was seen just nonchalantly walking through a Houston neighborhood, it’s safe to say it freaked people out.

Video and pics below (Warning 18+ language, because ya know a tiger was in this guy’s neighborhood)

The man with the gun is an off duty police officer who lives in the neighborhood and controlled the situation.



No one was hurt, and the man (off screen) who the officer was yelling at was the one who had the tiger, he apparently was a zoo employee and fled the scene with the tiger in his SUV.

We get sometimes you bring your work home with you, but this is a tad extreme.
