Distressed Arabian Gazelle Spotted Running On A Highway In Dubai

A highway invasion by an Arabian Gazelle sent shockwaves on the internet as the antelope was seen running between lanes alongside running vehicles.

Nicole Atalla, a resident based in the UAE captured the shocking moment when the Arabian Gazelle hasten from the dunes into a highway, evoking reactions of shock and surprise by Nicole as she honked behind the animal.

In a surprising move, the Arabian Gazelle skipped to the middle lanes of the highway, surrounded by vehicles from a distance.

Little is known about the Arabian Gazelle’s whereabouts. However, news outlet Lovin’ Dubai reports the antelope made a return to its desert.

Animals taking over the roads is an uncommon thing in the UAE, particularly main roads and highways. However, there are instances of camels roaming around single-lane roads closer to deserts every now and then. Not to mention mountain goats in wadis and mountains, motorists are advised to drive cautiously on those terrains.

It’s worth mentioning the quarantine phase in the early months of 2020 saw wild animals flock upon empty motorways. Check out this video clip of a leopard spotted taking rest on a road in Hyderabad, India:
