Has anyone tried to walk around and shout the tiger’s name really loudly?
A tiger filmed wandering the streets of Texas’s Houston neighborhood is apparently still unknown. More information has come out about the animal and some people involved claim that the situation is more complicated than it seems.
Victor Hugo Cuevas, an alleged guardian of the cat (who claims not to be the owner), has been taken into custody and charged in connection with the incident. His lawyer, Michael W. Elliott, told Fox News about the current situation. According to him, finding the tiger, a 9-month-old man named India, and taking him to a good reserve, zoo or sanctuary is one of his main worries at the moment.

He believes it is very likely that the tiger was with a man named Deandre earlier in the week. This man is apparently the real owner of the cat and, according to Elliott, is involved in the illegal trade in exotic animals. Unfortunately, as enough time has passed, he is less confident that India is still with this man.
Elliott also claims that Cuevas was ready to surrender to Harris County police when he was arrested in Fort Bend County. The lawyer explained that because his client had been arrested in a county other than the place where the alleged crime took place, this had made the situation with his bonds much more complicated than it should have been.
Some news outlets report that the tiger actually belonged to a man nicknamed “D.”

Cuevas was reportedly on $ 50,000 bail and accused of evading police, ABC 13 reported.
When the footage first appeared, witnesses said Cuevas helped bring the tiger back, but then lured the animal into a jeep and set off before authorities arrived. However, Cuevas’ lawyer told KHOU 11 that people speculated that his client was the man who put the tiger in the jeep and drove off, but this has not been proven.

While the tiger has not yet been located, the authorities do not believe that he is roaming for free, reports the New York Post. They also believe that two monkeys lived in the same house with the tiger and reportedly also disappeared from Sunday night’s events.
