A Bengal tiger filmed roaming through a quiet Houston neighborhood last Sunday has finally been found after a week-long search. 

The big cat, called India, was tracked down by cops in the Texan city on Sunday, and is now being cared for by an animal shelter.

Houston Police shared a photo of India wearing a turquoise sparkly collar while being fed a bottle of milk.

‘We got him and he’s healthy,’ a man says in the video. 

An update on India’s condition is expected at a press conference scheduled for 10pm EST. India was filmed roaming west Houston last Sunday, shortly before alleged murderer Victor Cuevas was seen bundling her into a white Jeep Cherokee.

Cuevas was later pulled over by cops, but there was no sign of India. He is reported to have been passed between a series of safe houses in recent days in a bid to keep her away from law enforcement.

Cuevas, who was on bail over a July 2017 shooting, is now back in jail. Texas state law allows tigers to be kept as pets but Houston has its own city rules which prohibits the big cats being kept in private homes.
