A tiger which was found caged at an abandoned house in Houston has been taken to a wildlife sanctuary.

The estimated 350-pound tiger was transported to Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch last week.

Noelle Almrud, director of the ranch in Texas told ABC News:

"It was just amazing to see him walk out on grass and to see him explore and have that freedom of movement.
"It was just such a reward and fulfilling to us. He comes right up to the fence every time a staff member is present, he seems very amenable to our presence."

The sanctuary has temporary legal custody of the tiger but is waiting until the Harris County District Attorney's Office grants the site full custody before naming the tiger.
