A tiger that had been seen wandering around a Houston neighborhood on Monday has been found, Houston police said Saturday. The tiger, named India, appears to be unharmed, police said.
Victor Cuevas, 26, is currently in police custody after he allegedly fled from police with the tiger earlier in the week. Cuevas had previously been out on bond for a separate murder charge from 2017. Houston Police Department Commander Ron Borza on Saturday identified Georgie "Gia" Cuevas as Cuevas' wife and India's owner. Borza said a friend of Gia Cuevas' tipped off police about the tiger's location around noon Saturday. Gia Cuevas then surrendered the tiger to police.
