Lock the doors.

A Bengal tiger was spotted roaming through a neighborhood in Houston on Sunday evening.

According to KHOU, the tiger was seen wearing a collar, and someone reportedly retrieved the huge animal.

An off-duty officer did pull his gun out when he saw the tiger in the yard but emphasized that he never pointed his weapon at anyone.

The television station in Houston reports that police were called into the neighborhood after the tiger was spotted, but someone put the animal in a vehicle and drove away before police arrived.
