Lions are well-known for their intimidating appearance and attacking prowess. Videos featuring the big cat’s fierceness often grab eyeballs online. This time, however, a group of stray dogs proved their strength when they encountered a lion in the streets of Gujarat at night, and the video has gone viral on social media platforms.
Susanta Nanda posted a video of a lion loitering in an empty street on Twitter. However, after a while, the lion picks up speed, and what follows it is a pack of dogs that appear to be barking behind the big cat. The lion is seen fleeing quickly and approaching a herd of cows. From a distance, the canines can be seen following the lion.
“Even a dog is a lion in its own lane from the streets of Gujarat. Via @surenmehra,” read the roughly translated caption of the clip.
Since being shared on Wednesday, the clip has amassed more than 19,000 views on Twitter. Netizens were shocked by the dogs chasing the lion. A user commented, “Probably, the lion is not brave, but the dogs are; just one roar, one leap against one dog, all the dogs would get lost.”
Another user wrote, “What is the objective of sharing this type of video. Do we want to show that we have successfully encroached their territory or did them successfully encroached our territory. No one is safe. Think someone encounters lion on his/her way to home then what.” A third user commented, “This is amazing and terrifying at the same time.”
