Police in Houston have arrested the owner of a tiger who allowed the big cat to get loose from his home and roam around the neighborhood. Neighbors captured video of the unexpected safari scene showing an off-duty sheriff’s deputy trying to hold off the tiger with a gun. The owner then eventually comes out and wrangles the cat into an SUV before driving away. Police finally captured 26-year-old Victor Hugo Cuevas and placed him under arrest, but the tiger was no where to be found and is believed to be on the loose. Cuevas, police say, was previously arrested last year and charged with murder and is out on $250,000 bail.
