A loose tiger has been spotted running around on a motorway in Doha, Qatar.

Incredible footage posted on social media shows the killer cat walk through cars stuck in traffic.

However, other images posted on Twitter appear to show a tiger on the motorway on a leash, suggesting that the cat was just let off for a little walk by its owner.

Owning tigers and other exotic animals is illegal in Qatar but it is suspected many flout the rules as a means of showing off their wealth and status.

Local press are reporting that the country's Minister of Interior was dealing with the matter.
