A tiger was spotted on the loose in a Houston neighborhood Sunday night — with one man pointing what appears to be a gun at the wild animal.
The big cat with a collar was roaming around the residential area on Ivy Wall Drive at about 8 p.m. when the unidentified man armed with the apparent gun yells at another man to take the tiger inside, KHOU 11 reported.
“Get the f–k back inside. F–k you and your f—-ng tiger,” the man can be heard saying while training the apparent weapon at the animal, according to video posted to social media.
The other man, who claims to be the owner, replies, “I’ll get him, I’ll get him,” according to the video 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,” the woman said. “What the heck? Why is there a tiger?”
The apparent owner eventually grabs the tiger and brings it back inside his home, photos show.
The incident was reported to police. It was not immediately clear if any charges will be filed.
