A couple has sparked outrage after they used a wild tiger to help pull off their extravagant gender reveal in Dubai.
The video, which has been seen by thousands online, shows the fierce animal set its sight on a round balloon on a beach next to the popular Burj Al Arab hotel.
In the footage, the tiger leaps into the air and pops one of the balloons with its claws to reveal the baby's gender.
A pink powder could then be seen flying in the air to reveal the expectant parents are having a baby girl.
But the controversial video has since sparked debate online with some social media users questioning whether the act is illegal.
