Amid coronavirus pandemic outbreak, people have been staying indoors in isolation, following travel restrictions. However, during the current lockdown phase, streets in Gir were visited by an unprompted guest- the king of the jungle. Recently, a terrifying video of a lion strolling down the streets of Ambardi, Gir, has surfaced on social media.
Susanta Nanda, an Indian Forest Services officer, uploaded the 14-second-long video on his official Twitter account. The event that took place at Ambardi in Gir, Gujarat, blew up the minds of people, as the IFS officer suggested people to stay at home not only because of coronavirus but also because of the wild beast roaming around. In the video, a lion can be seen calmly walking on the street at night, fortunately with nobody nearby. After a few seconds, the lion stops and turns behind to glance at the houses and then continues to tread on his path.

It’s not Corona virus that is searching for u on the roads, something bigger is on the prowl.
Stay home stay safe🙏
