As the driver pulled the car back to save the wild beast, the leopard is seen being dragged by the vehicle for a second, before attacking it back to express its anger. Moments later, the wounded leopard is then seen fleeing the scene. 

This is what we are doing to our wildlife. It’s a simple case of bad planning. More importantly we are building unsafe roads for citizens. @OfficeOfNG @MORTHIndia @MORTHRoadSafety @nitin_gadkari @RoadkillsIndia

In the past, leopard deaths have been reported from across the nation after allegedly being hit by vehicles. Last year, a two-year-old leopard was found dead on Pali-Surajkund road near Gurugram with autopsy reports suggesting it may have been hit by a vehicle. 

In 2019, a one and half-year-old female leopard were reportedly also killed by a truck on NH-48 in Manesar.
