A viral video shot in the outskirts of Gujarat's Gir sanctuary is grabbing everyone's attention on social media for all the right reasons. In the video, a lioness and her cubs can be seen making way for a biker like a 'civilised' animal. People are going crazy over the basic road sense shown by the lioness and her cubs in the viral video, with many calling them more civilised than people on Indian roads.
The video was shared by Rajya Sabha MP Parimal Nathwani on February 3. Ever since Nathwani has posted the video on Twitter, it has garnered more than 2,900 views and has been liked by 342 users. The video shows a lioness and her two cubs coming out from the jungle on a kacha road and walking straight until a biker comes in the way. The lioness followed by her cubs change her direction and silently goes back into the forest area.
This #viralvideo shows a #Lioness & two cubs moving away to give way to a biker on the way to his farm near a village on the outskirts of #Gir sanctuary. It is amazing to see them respecting humans' space. @ParveenKaswan @SanctuaryAsia @WWFINDIA @susantananda3 @NatGeoIndia pic.twitter.com/9yPM7Vvldc— Parimal Nathwani (@mpparimal) February 3, 2020
