Tigers in house mum ar­rested

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A WOMAN is in cus­tody af­ter po­lice found FOUR tigers in the house she shares with her 14-year-old daugh­ter.

Tr­isha Meyer, 34, of Hous­ton, was ar­rested and charged with child en­dan­ger­ment.

Court doc­u­ments show Meyer kept three tiger cubs, an adult tiger, a fox, a skunk and sev­eral mon­keys in the home she was leas­ing.

A spokesper­son for BARC An­i­mal Shel­ter and Adop­tions said: “Hav­ing wildlife in­side your home or even in your yard is dan­ger­ous. It can pose a threat to any­one in the house – es­pe­cially if it isn’t re­strained.”

Meyer is now fac­ing charges for al­low­ing her an­i­mals to roam freely in­side her home in con­tact with her daugh­ter.

She is cur­rently be­ing held on a £1,600 bail.
