The tiger could be seen coming face-to-face with an armed off-duty Waller County sheriff’s deputy.


The animal’s owner has been identified as Victor Cuevas. During the incident, the police deputy can be heard yelling at Cuevas to get the animal back inside.

Houston police said when officers arrived, Cuevas put the animal in an SUV and drove away. Authorities caught up with Cuevas later and took him into custody, but so far he’s only facing a charge for evading police.
