Carole Baskin Weighs In On The Houston Tiger, The Internet Is Predictably Skeptical

The plot has thickened with the escaped tiger in Houston. Not only was its owner identified as a murder suspect, but it has also been revealed that it is on the loose again. 

The viral Twitter video has made it onto national news for these worrying developments, and in its coverage on CNN the producers made a controversial choice of expert. To the bafflement of Twitter users everywhere, Carole Baskin was invited onto the show to discuss the issue.

Longstanding rivalry with Joe Exotic aside, many were quick to point out that she herself did not exactly have a clean conscience when it came to the topic of murder. While she might have a good handle on wild animal laws, that isn't what social media has been focusing on.

Loose Tiger Causes Mayhem In Houston

Move over, Tiger King: there's a new big cat keeper in town. There's only one problem, and it's that they can't seem to keep it contained.

A loose tiger is one of the last things you expect to see on a suburban Texan street, but that's exactly what confronted Twitter user @robwormald's parents yesterday evening. Add to the mix a standoff with a gun-toting cop and an outdoor party full of "tasty kids" nearby and you get a recipe for potential disaster.

Eventually, the owners turned up and contained the cat, before fleeing from police with it in the back of their car. While this sadly might not stop them from the illegal ownership of exotic animals, it definitely gave residents of this West Houston neighborhood pause for thought.

Twitter Users Share Winter Wisdom With Storm-Battered Texans

What started out as a relatively mild winter has now become a cold and unforgiving season for millions of Americans who already have the Covid-19 pandemic to worry about. Winter storm Uri has absolutely pummeled middle America (also known as the heartland) leaving at least 17 people dead, and millions without power in Texas.

Among the hardest hit areas were Houston and Galveston - where local governments have had to ask for trucks so they can store the bodies of people who have succumbed to the cold. The lack of power is leaving many Texans coping with freezing temperatures that they're not used to and circumstances that they're just not prepared for. While we realize that some Texans without power won't be able to see it, people on Twitter have been sharing their cold weather wisdom with the poor souls who are battling subzero temperatures. Twitter user @EyesUp_Orion started a wonderfully wholesome thread filled with very valuable advice for everyone hit by Uri. Tons more people with serious winter experience chimed in with their own hot (sorry) tips, creating a super-thread of helpfulness. While a thread might not bring the power back, it can make things a little more comfortable - or less dangerous - for everyone who is shivering. It's also just nice to see people on Twitter helping each other out.

Wholesome twitter thread, weather, winter weather, texas, texans, winter storm uri, cold weather tips, freezing, deaths, galveston, houston, power outages | quick tip from a michigander dealing with a ton of snow too: if you find your car stuck in the snow, wedging your car mats under the car can help get it out!

Salty Rockets Fans Are Leaving Scathing Reviews For Ayesha Curry's New Houston Restaurant

Ayesha Curry is already getting roasted and toasted for her Houston restaurant, International Smoke, that's set to open in July. Rockets fans are apparently still salty over Houston's NBA loss to the Golden State Warriors in Game 7 - which is where Ayesha's husband Steph plays. So salty, in fact, that they've been intentionally leaving terrible Yelp reviews for the her new restaurant, which hasn't even opened yet. The reviews may be mean and uncalled for, but they're certainly provided us with some hearty laughs!
