Lion in 4x4 on Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai: Police Investigating

Police are reported to be probing a video that shows a lion in the boot of a 4x4 driving along Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai.

The short clip seems to show the animal in the Dubai-registered Nissan Armada. Dubai Police are said to be investigating whether the video was old or new.

The video was uploaded on YouTube on Friday 21 February, with footage showing the lion moving about in the back of the vehicle.

While it is not illegal to transfer a wild animal inside a private vehicle, General Expert Mohammed Saif Al Zafeen, operations assistant for the head of Dubai Police, has been quoted by 7DAYS as saying, “It’s not logical for a person to transfer a lion or crocodile inside a car. If someone did such a thing and he is arrested, he will be fined for endangering the lives of others. People must be more careful and mature in transferring animals and should use a special company to carry their animals.”
