MURCIA, SPAIN — Spanish police were prompted to post a video online, along with a statement to remind citizens to stay indoors after an unidentified citizen was caught roaming the streets disguised in a T-Rex costume.
It comes after Spain's Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez imposed a 15-day state of emergency that has restricted free movement besides essential trips.
And while walking pets is still allowed, the police did note on social media that dinosaurs are not included under this exemption.
Officers did not provide details of why the resident was sporting a dinosaur outfit, or who they were.
However, many commenters suggested that it may have been the unidentified person's attempt to shield themselves from the virus.
Murcia Police also wrote, "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."
The tweets offer some light-hearted relief in the country, which has so far seen nearly 18,000 cases and 831 deaths.
The metrics suggest that Spain is currently the fourth worst-hit nation in the world after China, Iran, and Italy.
