The Crown Prince of Dubai rescued an oryx that was trapped in discarded netting in a video shared on social media on Monday.
Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed spotted the creature ambling in difficulty with debris around its neck and took it upon himself to help it.
In a video shared by the Crown Prince, he is seen driving alongside the animal before using a dart gun to subdue it.
He and several companions then follow the oryx until it lies on the ground sedated.
The group then use scissors to free the animal from the net before apparently injecting it with a stimulant and returning it to the wild.
The creature is pictured running off towards a herd once again.
Environment groups have repeatedly urged campers and commercial companies alike to respect the desert and refrain from dumping or leaving behind foreign materials.
