WATCH: Escaped Tiger Walks Through Traffic on Qatar Highway


Motorists in Doha, Qatar had more than rush-hour traffic to contend with on Tuesday morning. They also shared the highway with an escaped tiger.

One clip appeared to show the tiger falling off a truck. It was not clear if the big cat had come from the truck or was trying to hitch a ride and failed.

The tiger quickly became a sensation online, with photos and videos shared on Twitter and Facebook.

In one video, a man could be heard saying he was recording the scene only for him, not for social media. Of course, the clip showing the tiger’s capture ended up on Twitter.

Although it’s not clear how the tiger ended up on the highway, it’s believed the animal was an escaped pet.
