A tiger that was filmed roaming the roads of a Houston neighborhood in Texas is apparently still unaccounted for. More information has come out regarding the creature and some people involved are claiming that the situation is much more complex than it seems.
Victor Hugo Cuevas, the cat’s alleged caretaker (who claims he is not its owner), was taken into custody and is facing charges related to the event. His attorney, Michael W. Elliott, talked with Fox News regarding the present situation. Based on him, finding the tiger, who’s a 9-month-old man named India, and getting him to some great conserve, zoo or sanctuary is one of the main concerns at the moment.
He believes it is probably the tiger was having a guy named Deandre earlier in the week. This man appears to be the cat’s real proprietor and is considered by Elliott to be involved in the illegal exotic animal trade. Regrettably, since enough time has passed, he is less convinced that India remains with this individual.
Elliott also claims that Cuevas was prepared to turn himself into Harris County authorities when he was detained in Fort Bend County. The attorney said that because his client was arrested in a different county than where the alleged crime happened, this has made his bond scenario much more complicated than it needs to be.
Some news outlets have reported that the tiger actually belonged to a man nicknamed”D.” Elliott confirmed that”D” and Deandre are the same person. He expects to have the ability to sit down with a sketch artist to aid with locating this individual (along with India as well).
After the footage first surfaced, witnesses stated Cuevas helped bring the tiger back inside but then lured the creature to an SUV and drove off until authorities could arrive. Cuevas’ attorney, nevertheless, told KHOU 11 that people are supposing his client was the man who put the tiger to the SUV and drove off but that has not yet been proven.
While the tiger has yet to be located, police don’t believe it is roaming free, the New York Post reports. They also believe that two monkeys had been living in precisely the exact same home with the tiger and have reportedly also gone missing since Sunday night’s events.
