The Conroe Police Department started getting reports of the lone tiger around 11:50 a.m. Thursday, according to The Associated Press. She was spotted on Coral Cove Pass, near Longmire and League Line, police said.

Animal control officers found and captured her without incident.

Officers told the wire service if the tiger and her owner live in city limits, the tiger would have to be moved because of Thursday's incident.
