Oh the things you’ll find on the internet. Thanks to Jalopnik, we came across this video of a lion riding shotgun in a Chevrolet Silverado pickup traveling on a road in Dubai. No, not a dog, not a cat… but a freakin’ lion. Luckily, the feline is secured in place and behaves very much like a dog, sticking his head out of the window and enjoying the breeze.
It’s worth mentioning that having such an animal as a pet is a status symbol in Dubai, so a pet lion isn’t as out of place to those who are accustomed to seeing such a thing. To us, however, the idea is foreign, as we can’t imagine that there are too many people who would be comfortable sharing an enclosed space with a massive feline. At least the owner has a big ol’ Silverado 2500HD for his big ol’ kitty cat.
