Sgt. Dorcy McGinnis said the tiger seems to be tame. Authorities are asking for assistance in finding the tiger's owner.

McGinnis said that if the tiger and its owner live in Conroe, the tiger will no longer be able to be housed in the city due to this incident.



Conroe is 40 miles north of Houston.
