A scary video featuring restless bikers and a scared Leopard who tried to attack them has been making rounds of the internet. As per the visuals, people while traveling on the road can be seen coming across a leopard in the bushes and stopped their vehicles for the animal to pass. However, two people sitting on a bike got restless and decided to go ahead without waiting for the leopard to cross the road. As the bikers passed across the leopard, the animal rushed towards them and tried to pounce on the bike, however, the leopard missed the target and the bikers went ahead without an injury.
The Twitterati, who tweeted the video on Friday, November 15 expressed amusement over the leopard missing its target. He said that everyone on the road was waiting for the leopard to cross the place, but the bikers got restless. He termed the leopard as the “real owner” of the road by taking a jibe on the human encroachment activities. He further urged the people in his tweet to “respect the wild”.
How could the leopard miss it🤔All were waiting to give right of way to its real owner, the leopard, when a motorcyclist wanted to have his way. Would have been his last ride. Please learn to respect the wild🙏🏼🙏🏼 pic.twitter.com/j2yZiwEx7K— Susanta Nanda IFS (@susantananda3) November 15, 2019
The netizens contemplated over the incident after watching the shocking video of human apathy versus animal attack. A few of them thought that the dog breeds could drive away from the wild leopards that venture into human settlements from the forest. While the others expressed their opinion by saying that the highways crossing the wildlife areas should be closed during the night. A few of them penalized the bikers over their decision of passing across the leopard.
Sir, in our southern forests and near by farms we face leopard human conflict more than other animal human conflict. Do you think few dog breeds like mudhol, sheperd etc can drive away leopards and protect the farm?— Pradeep T Palakshan (@pradeep8567) November 15, 2019
Why not close roads in all wildlife area at night times, don't we trouble them enough in the day.— Doctor Doctor 🇮🇳 (@icedtea28) November 15, 2019
I rememeber when that speeding driver killed an elephant in Kodagu. Tragic.
Bikers think that they can break laws of nature just like they break traffic laws in cities.— Vidya Heble (@purrsiflager) November 15, 2019
