Missed by a whisker, screams the Twitterati as a 12-second clip showing a leopard trying to pounce at two motorcycle- borne men has gone viral.
It’s still not clear where or who recorded the video, but the clip shared by IFS Susanta Nanda has grabbed everyone’s attention.
In a tweet, on Friday, Nanda requested to “respect the wild”.
He wrote: “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.”
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 clip shows an empty and a dimly lit road. However, if you look closely a leopard can be seen standing on the roadside.
Within seconds, a bike passes the area, where the leopard is standing.
The leopard runs and pounces on the bike, but the men ride away. By just inches, the leopard misses the men. Instead of chasing the men down, the animal runs into the jungle.
Twitter couldn’t resist reacting.
