Houston Police said the tiger’s male owner was seen “escorting the tiger to the residence then putting it into his vehicle,” a Jeep Cherokee.
Police said the man drove away at a high rate of speed. Responding officers attempted to pursue the man but reportedly lost sight of him.
The subject was described as a Hispanic man about 28 years old, standing 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing about 130 pounds. He was later identified as 26-year-old Victor Cuevas. He was charged with felony evading arrest for allegedly fleeing Houston Police officers.
