In Nashik, a leopard attacked a pet dog and killed it. The incident has caused a stir in the area. The incident has been captured by CCTV. The video has been viewed by more than 20,000 people on Twitter.
The video shows the dog sitting on the patio bench at night. A few seconds later, a leopard appears. The dog barks at the leopard and tries to run away. This time the leopard backs away for a while and is attacked by the dog as soon as he enters the yard. After some time, the leopard is seen hunting the dog, grabbing it by the jaw and running away.
Nashik Deputy Forest Conservator Pankaj Garg, reacting to this incident, has asked the villagers not to go out at night. “Leopard movement has increased and we urge villagers not to go out at night,” he said. People should stay at home and be alert,” said Pankaj Garg.
