CONROE, Texas (AP) - Police say a tiger that was seen roaming around the city of Conroe in Montgomery County has been captured.

The Conroe Police Department says it received several phone calls starting at 11:50 a.m. Thursday from residents who saw the young, female tiger wandering around the Coral Cove Pass area in Conroe, 40 miles north of Houston.

Animal control officers responded and captured the tiger, which was wearing a collar with a leash attached.

Sgt. Dorcy McGinnis said that the tiger seems to be tame.

Authorities are asking for assistance in locating the tiger’s owner.

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