Above: A video, apparently taken Tuesday, of a tiger cub with a broken chain attached to its collar trotting between cars in a Doha, Qatar, traffic jam. The Doha News site says the country's Interior Ministry is looking into the situation; the site also points to another video clip, posted by an Oman-based news publication, that appears to show the tiger back on a leash.

(Note that the person taking the video claims to the tiger's caretaker that he's not going to put it on social media. Welp.)

From Doha News:

Although illegal, is not uncommon for residents to keep wild animals such as tigers, lions and cheetahs as pets in Qatar ... Despite repeated warnings of the dangers about this practice from the authorities including the Ministry of Interior, practical enforcement of these regulations is patchy.

Travel advice: Wear a full suit of armor at all times when you're in Qatar.
