Watch: Courageous farmer saves cow from jaws of lioness in Gujarat’s Gir

Screengrab from the video

The video shows a courageous farmer saving his cow from the death grip of a lioness in Gujarat’s Gir Somnath district. The lioness pounces on the cow which is seen desperately struggling to get away. The farmer keeps his calm and walks fearlessly towards the lioness with his hand raised in an attempt to scare away the lioness but she refuses to let go the cow’s neck. The farmer then picks up a brick from the side of the road and moves aggressively ahead. This rattles the lioness and she lets go of the cow to run back into the forest.

The video was posted on Twitter by Vivek Kotadiya, corporator of Keshod in Gujarat’s Junagadh. His tweet in Gujarati said that the incident took place in the Gir Somnath district when the lioness pounced on the cow. The rare clip was recorded by a motorist who was passing by.
