Dubai Police clarifies rumours of jaguar on the loose

Dubai: Dubai Police said on Thursday that the ‘wild animal’ seen in a residential neighbourhood in a viral video on social media was actually a pet cat.

After two days of searching, the force affirmed in a statement that the wild animal wasn’t a jaguar as previously thought but a black pet cat.

Dubai Police reached the conclusion after an intensive search and speaking to experts trained on tracking animals.

Earlier this week, there were reports that an escaped wild cat was on the prowl in the Springs 3 area of Dubai.

As a video of a black cat circulated on social media groups, residents of the Springs community were warned to exercise caution by the authority.

Dubai Police reassured residents that they investigated the animal in the video and found it wasn’t a jaguar but a black pet cat.

Dubai Police took the necessary measures to provide security and safety to the residents of the Springs area until they verified the information.

Police urged the public not to circulate rumors or any news or clips that can have a negative impact on society.
