Video captures moment a leopard snatches family dog in a single bite

The moment a leopard crept into a family home and attacked a pet dog has been captured on CCTV.

Video footage shows the hungry big cat prowl across the back yard and in through the front door of the house where it is confronted by two dogs.

The leopard darts back into the yard, pursued by one of the dogs, which is quickly dispatched with a swift bite to the neck, and dragged away.

Another dog scrambles into the yard in a bid to save its playmate but is too late.

Homeowners Chandan Singh Adhikar and his daughter Tapisha saw the leopard near the door, but it grabbed the dog before they could intervene.

Ms Singh said: “Leopards used to run away from human smell but now they are entering a residential area and not running away even after a ruckus is created.

“This is alarming. If things continue like this, the leopards will soon be attacking humans too.”

Mr Singh demanded the government take action and said: “I would request the administration to put traps around the area to stop similar incidents happening in the future.

“Such incidents are getting frequent in the area.”

The incident happened on 18 July in Nainital of Uttarakhand in northern India.
