Doha: social media in UAE is abuzz with news of a lion cub spotted on the streets of Abu Dhabi. 
Khaleej Times reported quoting Twitter users that a lion cub is spotted in Khalifa City. 

Even though keeping exotic and dangerous animals as pets are against the law in UAE and invites hefty fines there are many who flout the law and keep these animals in their villas.

A few months back a video of tigers playing in the sea in UAE had gone viral. The authenticity or where it was taken was not known.
“There have been speculations that the lion is being kept as a pet but has escaped from the villa of its owner,” the online report said.
