WATCH: Tiger roams on Doha highway

Usually they walk in forests but a tiger was spotted wandering in concrete jungle on one of Doha’s busiest roads. And, traffic jam was bit of problem for him to like other commuters on Tuesday morning.

Soon pictures and video showing the tiger roaming among cars on the Doha Expressway flooded social media in the tiny Gulf country.

A 20-second video on YouTube and Twitter showed the big cat running through lanes of heavy traffic, apparently trying to find a way off the congested road.

A footage also emerged showing the tiger initially falling onto the road from a moving truck.

The Doha interior ministry said it was investigating the incident. It tweeted, “We assure all that the concerned authorities (are) following up with what has been trending over spotting a tiger in some areas of the country.”‘

One picture released on social media claimed to show that the big cat had been captured safe and sound.

It was not clear who owned the tiger, but keeping wild animals, including tigers, as pets is not uncommon in wealthy Gulf countries.
