"When officers arrived at the home, they found several wild animals all roaming freely inside Meyer’s home, including three tigers, a cougar, a skunk and a fox..."

"... police said. They also found Meyer’s 14-year-old daughter in the home during that time, police said."

The news clip at the link doesn't mention the selfie angle to this woman's behavior, but here's the screen grab I made:

They're well fed, if they're not eating each other.

rhhardin said...

You don't want to mix cats and gerbils, though.

madAsHell said...

They also found an ass, two calves, ten little piggies hiding in her pants. There was some evidence of a fish, but no one has been able to find it.

Rae said...

A genuine tiger mom, what's all the fuss?

I'll let myself out.

Ron Winkleheimer said...

Skunks stink even if they don't spray. The only way to avoid that is to have their scent glands removed. Also, if you ever encounter one on a sidewalk after dark while walking from your night shift to the barracks, you will find that it is you who backs off.

Ron Winkleheimer said...

Some people think it is funny to break open a light stick and use the chemicals to paint streaks down the back of a stray cat so that it looks like some kind of irradiated skunk in the dark while on maneuvers.

Those people are assholes.

monkeys... which can be vicious and had attacked someone previously, police said

Other than a potential for violence, and poorly reported allegations, it seems that the woman had the situation under control.

robother said...

There are no bad tigers, only bad owners.

Henry said...

She had permits for the tigers. Not for the skunks. As far as I'm concerned, that's the craziest part of the story.

Also: What kind of kitten was it? A piterbald?

Trumpit said...

The ones who should be arrested are the hunters who kill animals such as these for fun. Put hunters in jail, and free this young lady.

There was an Old Man with a beard,
Who said, "It is just as I feared!—
Two Owls and a Hen, four Larks and a Wren,
Have all built their nests in my beard.

Yeah how many times did some poor black cat get raped on Looney Tunes because she walked under the wrong can of paint and then ran into Pepe Le Pew? That guy was almost as much as a sexual harasser as Hawkeye Pierce in Mash.

Crazy cat lady prefers quality to quantity.

The Texas authorities involved here are loonies, there's no other explanation. For some reason they transported her to a jail facility in Nevada, probably due to overcrowding in their own women's lockup. Just to transport her to Nevada must have costs thousands, ignoring the thousands the Nye County Sheriff's Office will charge for processing and holding her. The bond was set at a mere $2000, and having been transported from her home county Myers is entitled to all costs entailed to return her to her home county once bond is posted. Next cost to Harris County taxpayer — $11 grand, minimum.

Allowing tigers and cougars to roam at will in one's home may not be wise, but the demanded bail indicates that someone, most likely a SJW-type working for the Texas Health & Human Services Commission, has got a bee in the bonnet BIG TIME. For some reason social work attracts people afflicted with the "rescuer" syndrome, the irrational need to rescue people from themselves no matter who gets killed in the process.

If "social services" was just a place where the indolent and crippled go to get free money, I think we'd all be happier, healthier, and wealthier than we are now. Seriously.

Insane. Fucking insane.

Now that there is funny. I don't care who you are.

Typo alert: Next cost to Harris County taxpayer — $11 grand, minimum.

Should read Net cost, of course. Thank you, Safari.

JaimeRoberto said...

Did they count her as the cougar?

David said...

The tiger looks depressed. Justifiably.

madAsHell said...

Thanks. I had an earlier life as a salesman. Hated it, but I did hear a lot of good stories.

Big Mike said...

She has a teenage daughter? How many kids did she have before she bought the tigers?

Big Mike said...

Note to parents of boys who took the daughter out on a date and never came home ...

The big tiger says "Bu-u-u-urp"

Fritz said...

The Lion, the Lion, he dwells in the Waste,
He has a big head and a very small waist;
But his shoulders are stark, and his jaws they are grim,
And a good little child will not play with him.

The tiger, on the other hand,
Is kittenish and mild,
And makes a pretty playfellow
For any little child.
And mothers of large families
(Who claim to common sense)
Will find a tiger well repays
The trouble and expense.

The tiger appears satiated, which is probably why it does not run amuck in a carnivorous or abortive frenzy.

Static Ping said...

Too bad Animal Cops (Houston) is no longer a going concern. That would be a great episode.

AprilApple said...

The guys who do the vegas shows with the white tigers? - they are real assholes who treat their animals with abysmal cruelty. Arrest them.

William said...

Do tigers use kitty litter? I don't know if it's possible to housebreak a tiger. Outside of the more obvious problem of being mauled or devoured, there's also the substantial problem of cleaning up after them. Tigers make very poor house pets.

AprilApple said...

Tigers make wonderful pets, it you hate your floors and all of your furniture, and you like purchasing a lot of expensive meats.

David said...

Or drugged.

Fabi said...

Who let the dogs out?!

Woof! Woof, woof!

Crazy Jane said...

I think our hostess should invite rhhardin (cats, gerbils) and Ron Winklehammer (skunks) to submit some guest posts. They seem to have some interesting stories to share.

Tari said...

She was renting the house, for goodness sake! The Houston Chronicle interviewed her landlord, who, needless to say, was fairly pissed off. The house is here: http://www.har.com/11811-cypresswood-dr/rent_29238014. I wonder if he used old photos for the listing or if this is after he cleaned it up?

I rent a house to a guy who started running a health club out of the garage, leading to City Code Enforcement letters and threats of $2000/day fines (to me the homeowner, not the a$$hole renter) for operating a commercial business in a residential dwelling.

I'd prefer the tenant with critters, as nothing untoward happened before the tenant decamped. Hey, a full security deposit and last month's rent in my pocket! Although I hope the skunk was de-scented.
