Bengal tiger FOUND SAFE eight days after being spotted near Houston with ‘killer’ amid allegations she passed around local ‘safe houses’

A Bengal tiger filmed through a quiet neighborhood in Houston last Sunday has finally been found after a week’s search. The big cat, called India, was tracked down by police in the Texas town on Sunday and is now being taken care of by an animal shelter.

Houston police shared a photo of India with a turquoise sparkly collar while being given a bottle of milk.

An update on the state of India is expected at a press conference scheduled for 10pm EST. India was filmed across western Houston last Sunday, shortly before alleged killer Victor Cuevas saw her bundle up in a white Jeep Cherokee.

Cuevas was later detained by the police, but there was no trace of India. She is said to have passed between a series of safe houses in recent days in an attempt to keep her away from law enforcement.

Cuevas, who was out on bail for a shooting in July 2017, is now back in prison. Texas state law allows tigers to be kept as pets, but Houston has its own city rules that prohibit big cats from being kept in private homes.
