The search for the exotic animal which seemed like a black jaguar in Springs 3 area in Dubai started on Tuesday after a video went viral on social media. Social media can be quite deceiving, and this is why. Dubai Police on Thursday confirmed the animal spotted in the Springs area was a domestic cat and not a wild animal.

Dubai's Media Office said wildlife experts concluded there was no evidence there was a jaguar on the loose in the neighbourhood.

Officers reassured the public and community residents that the viral video of the animal was carefully analysed and experts determined that it was a domestic cat.

The force said it has taken all measures to ensure the safety of residents and urged the public to exercise caution when sharing information on social media.
