The tiger was being taken in a caged truck to the location when the cat decided it was time for some off-the-camera action. The domesticated tiger was soon put back in the vehicle and taken to the location of the shoot.

But with the videos of the tiger going viral, the Qatar Police identified the vehicle in which the tiger was being transported. The team which was responsibile for trasporting the animal was let go only after they paid a hefty fine, says a report in Malayala Manorama.
