You don't see a headline like that every day that's for sure.

According to NBC News, a Texas man who entered an abandoned home to smoke marijuana on Monday found a tiger in the garage. Yes, there was a real live tiger there in the garage (in a cage) which was secured only with a screwdriver and a nylon strap.

Apparently, the tiger was in good health at least by appearance anyway.

Just imagine if the tiger had somehow gotten out of the cage and started wandering the streets of Houston. That sucker could have caused some serious damage...to humans.

The tiger was taken to an animal shelter and will be transferred to an undisclosed animal sanctuary in Texas.

Police are investigating who may have owned the 1,000-pound female tiger.
