The video sees the canine sitting in front of the gate outside a home. Just as the dog is about to open it, the animal runs back and disappears from the camera.
We can then see the big leopard jumping over the gate before grabbing the dog by its collar, going outside the house and disappearing from sight.
The forest department’s official, in the comments section, wrote that such kinds of incidents have been witnessed in different regions especially those on the hills, adding that people put iron collars on the dogs’ necks for protecting them.
He mentioned that stray dogs pose a threat to leopards as well.
Previously, a terrifying video of a similar incident in the Maharashtra state of India made rounds on the internet.
