The video shows the leopard leaping from one tree to another and grabbing the monkey in his mouth but then comes crashing down to the ground as the branch of the tree breaks under his weight. However, the leopard does not let go of his prey.
This is a rare sight as leopards normally hunt at night and usually are not easy for humans to spot.
