(TMU) — We’ve seen a number of bizarre—if not previously unimaginable—things since this coronavirus pandemic plunged the entire world into chaos.
And as increasing numbers of people in various countries are being instructed to shelter-in-place, self-quarantine, or otherwise obey strict orders to remain indoors, people are getting creative in their approach to carry on their pre-crisis routines, errands, and necessary tasks.
And for one resourceful man in Cyprus, this meant deploying an unmanned aerial vehicle to walk his dog while on lockdown due to the novel virus.
In a video published to Facebook (backup video) on Wednesday, Vakis Demetriou shared an extraordinary image of his small dog being taken for a walk by a drone that hovers at the opposite end of a leash.
The video caption read:
“5th day quarantine. Stay home safe but don’t forget your dog’s happiness.”

The pup itself seemed quite satisfied by the arrangement as he walked through the empty streets of Limassol, a city on the southeastern coast of the Mediterranean island nation.
According to In-Cyprus, the country’s health ministry has 75 confirmed cases of CoViD-19 as of Friday evening. There are also 33 confirmed cases in the Turkish-occupied zone in the north of the country.
