Have you ever imagined having a wild life animal living with you as your furry friend? Maybe seeing your neighbour are housing a lion or tiger. Well Houston residents recently had their scare after seeing a tiger on the loose in a Houston neighborhood.
One of the men in the neigborhood took action by pointing what appears to be a gun at the wild animal.
The big cat appeared to have a collar and was roaming freely around the residential area on Ivy Wall Drive at about 8 p.m. the night. The unidentified armed man starting yelling at one of the neighbours who appears to be the owner of the wild animal. The man urged the owner to take the tiger inside.
The man can be heard saying “Get the f–k back inside. F–k you and your f–king tiger,” while training the apparent weapon at the animal.
A video of the tiger and the confrontation has been making its rounds on social media.
In the video the owner could be heard replying: “I’ll get him, I’ll get him.” The video was posted to Twitter by user @robwormald.
In another video, a woman shelters inside her home while watching the standoff.

“There is a freaking Bengal tiger roaming in this yard and this dude needs to be careful. What the heck? Why is there a tiger?” the woman says.
The owner eventually takes hold of the tiger and brings it back inside his home. The incident was however reported to the police.
