Tiger Found Loose In Texas Neighborhood

The owner of a tiger that was spotted taking a Mother's Day prowl through a Texas neighborhood was arrested Monday, but his big cat remains on the loose, police said.

Hugo Cuevas was charged with evading arrest after police said he put the tiger in an SUV and drove off when cops arrived at the west Houston community to investigate reports that the jungle cat had hopped a fence and was stalking the streets.

Police said Cuevas, 26, who was out on bond following a 2017 murder charge, was being held at a jail in Richmond, Texas. His attorneys told TODAY he's not the owner of the tiger.
