After leopard in Bengaluru & lions in Nairobi, tigers roam around on Doha streets


Doha, March 9: Predators are turning increasingly urbane nowadays. After the recent instances of leopards roaming around on streets of Bengaluru and lions on roads of Nairobi, Doha, the capital of Qatar, saw on Tuesday (March 8) a tiger wandering through one of its busy thoroughfares.

A video of the striped animal moving around in between vehicles on Doha Expressway went viral on the social media.


It was said the tiger had fallen off a moving truck.

The interior ministry of the West Asian country later tweeted about the incident, saying the authorities were keeping a close watch on whatever news was trending over the spotting of the tiger.

Some later said on social media that the animal was captured safely though there was no official information on the same.

People are known to own wild animals as pets in wealthy Gulf countries, although it is not legal. Officials said late on Tuesday that the owner of the tige on the loose was identified and legal proceedings have been initiated on the matter.
