Amid the nationwide lockdown to curb the spread of coronavirus, videos have emerged of wildlife reacquiring their natural habitat while humans remain confined to their homes. Indian Forester Ramesh Pandey recently shared an encounter of a leopard with a “sneaky” porcupine in Katerniaghat. In the short 18-second clip, both animals can be seen moving towards each other in the dark.
