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.
Apparently there’s a tiger loose on my parents’ West Houston street? pic.twitter.com/TgdIiPSPKx

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.
