Wealthy people in the Gulf countries playing and going out with their pet lions.
Wealthy people in the Gulf countries once took the internet by storm with pictures of them playing and going out with their pet lions, tigers and leopards going viral. But now, with the announcement of a new law in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), people who own such pets may face fines or even jail terms.
The UAE has outlawed the private ownership of wild animals. Anyone who violates the law may face a jail term of up to six months and a fine of up to 500,000 dirhams (136,000 US dollars). Owning such extravagant pets has often been seen as a status symbol in the Gulf, despite recent reports on the vulnerability of many big cat species, with a December study saying cheetahs are rapidly heading towards extinction.
In October, a man went out with five tigers on a beach near Dubai’s iconic Burj Al-Arab Hotel, footage of which went viral on social media.
