A 24-year-old woman is facing charges after a tiger was discovered in a small, filthy cage which was inside of a dark garage in Houston, Texas. As reported by Dallas News, Brittany Marie Garza was arrested on Wednesday following the discovery of the tiger in February.
The 350-lb feline was found in the abandoned house by a person who snuck inside the structure to smoke pot. The good Samaritan reported the unusual discovery to the authorities and the big cat was rescued from his dismal existence.
Garza claims that she loves the tiger, whose name is Raja, and has stated that she made it her “priority” to care for him every day, reports the Daily Mail. Garza claims that the cage which Raja was found in was merely a transport cage – the enclosure was layered in urine and feces.
The young tiger is now living at a Texas animal sanctuary – Garza is due in court on May 22 to face a misdemeanor charge of animal cruelty.
