A man in Spain has been arrested for walking the streets wearing a T-Rex dinosaur outfit to take his rubbish outside while the country is on lockdown.

It is gathered that the man who tested positive for coronavirus was arrested after he was seen dressed as an enormous brown dinosaur.


The Murcia Police located in the southeastern Spanish city shared footage of the man dressed as a dinosaur and warned citizens to stay at home.

Writing on Twitter, Murcia Police said while dog owners can go on short walks, dinosaurs cannot. They wrote:

“During state of alarm, walking of pets is allowed if accompanied by one person, always short walks so they can relieve themselves. Having a Tyrannosaurus rex is not covered. #stayathome.”

The man’s arrest is coming just a day after earlier Murcia Police reminded nationals of the quarantine rules:

“Remember that you can go outside during the essential time so that our pet meets his needs and do not forget to collect their droppings. Do not use your pet as an excuse to break the rules.”

Spain currently has the fourth-highest number of cases for coronavirus worldwide and has recorded 623 deaths.

The country recently reported a dramatic rise in coronavirus infection with 13,910 cases.

Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez told a near-empty Parliament yesterday:

“We have never lived through anything like this.

“And our society, which had grown used to changes that expand our possibilities of knowledge, health, and life, now finds itself in a war to defend all we have taken for granted.”

“It is clear that annual GDP will fall, as the European Commission has already pointed out. 2020 will not have 12 months, but 10 or even 9.

“If we manage to maintain employment levels and the production structure as long as the crisis lasts without major and irreparable damage, at the end of the crisis there would be a quick recovery, including a possible rebound effect that would accelerate activity.”
