Nasik: In a viral video, two dogs chased away a leopard in the Adgaon Shivar area of Nasik, after it tried to attack the two sleeping canines.

CCTV footage captured a gripping moment as a leopard stealthily entered the lawn of a residence, targeting a dog sleeping near the main door. The wild cat's intentions were thwarted when another vigilant dog woke up and started barking, joining forces with the sleeping canine to chase the intruder away.

However, the leopard made a brief return, only to be met with the same resistance from the courageous dogs.

The wild cat was spotted walking atop one of the structures, triggering chaos as people ran for safety. The incident occurred at 4:00 pm on Wednesday, leaving the crew and bystanders in a state of alarm.

As these incidents highlight the presence of leopards in human-populated areas, authorities remain vigilant in safeguarding both wildlife and residents.
