Leopard enters residential area, climbs wall to hunt chicken

By Vaseline May31,2024

Locals were shocked after a viral video showed a leopard jumping over a three-metre wall and chasing a chicken in a residential area.

The CCTV footage recorded in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India, shows a chicken standing on top of a wall of a house in the middle of the night.

It is then that the video shows two torch-like lights approaching the wall, which is reflected by a leopard’s eyes.

The viral video shows the leopard stealthily approaching before pouncing on the chicken.

While the hunter missed the chicken on the first attempt, he chases it and is later seen in the background walking out with the chicken in his jaws.

The viral video of the predator caused widespread concern among local residents and prompted local forest officials to tighten surveillance.

Later, a forest ranger said that the residential area was just 15 meters away from the sanctuary and leopard movements were common in the residential area.
