The video shows the bone-chilling act of a crafty leopard climbing up a tree and killing a monkey. The big cat is seen holding its prey in its mouth as it moves down the tree to the ground.
Leopards are known to be solitary and elusive creatures that are the hardest to find and film. They also usually hunt at night.
The video was filmed by officials of the tiger reserve and shared on Twitter.
