The animals got loose and were filmed running down the middle lane of one of the busiest highways in Doha
A flock of sheep were caught on camera charging down the middle of Doha’s Salwa Road on Tuesday.
Various clips, which have gone viral on social media, show at least 20 sheep that appear to have escaped running down the middle lane of one of the busiest highways in Qatar.
In one video posted on the Facebook page of Arabian Business’ sister publication Ahlan! Qatar, the sheep can be seen running fearlessly down the road, with a constant stream of vehicles moving past them.
Doha News noted that, while it is common to see livestock such as camels, goats and sheep on Qatar’s roads, they are usually being transported in a pick-up truck, not running free alongside the traffic.
