NEW CAIRO, Egypt, Sept. 29 (UPI) — Authorities in Egypt said a tiger was confiscated from a man who allegedly allowed the animal to roam freely in his yard.

The New Cairo Police Department and the General Department for Environmental Police said the tiger was taken from a Saudi man living in the Rehab development after complaints from neighbors about the wild animal, al-Masry al-Youm reported Thursday.

The tiger was anesthetized and taken to the Giza Zoo.

Police said the case has been referred to prosecutors.
