“Her name is Nala. She’s very nice. She’s a 4-5 month old tiger,” said a man who identified himself only as Cody.
Cody saw the news about the tiger found roaming a north Conroe neighborhood and called Eyewitness News claiming it’s his — sort of. He says her ownership is up in the air.
“We dropped her off at a friend’s and I don’t really know how she got out,” Cody said.
Authorities are now are asking for assistance in locating the owner. The female tiger has a collar and a leash. Anyone with any information regarding the owner of the young, female tiger is asked to contact the Conroe Police Department at 936-522-3200.
A critically endangered Malayan tiger killed one of its keepers at a zoo in Palm Beach, Florida earlier this month.
Stacey Konwiser, the 38-year-old lead zookeeper at Palm Beach Zoo, was attacked while she was preparing the animal for an afternoon show in a back area where the tigers eat and sleep.
