Video shocker: Blackbucks run for dear life on Maharashtra highway as crazy motorist drives in hot pursuit

Screengrab from the viral video.

Indian Forest Service officer Susanta Nanda on Tuesday shared a shocking incident of a crazy motorist chasing two blackbucks which are sprinting down a highway to get away from the danger. While the animals are going through this extreme trauma and running for their lives, the sadistic vehicle driver appears to be quite enjoying himself as he continues to record the chase.

A Twitter user identified the road as Samruddhi Mahamarg in Maharashtra.

Mr Susant Nanda has pointed out that that chasing wild animals amounts to hunting under the Wildlife Protection Action and the act is punishable with imprisonment of three to seven years.

“This driver must be crazy chasing black bucks in their own territory. Driving wild animals amounts to hunting under the Wildlife Protection Act, punishable with a imprisonment of 3 yrs, which may extend to 7 years. Anyone knowing the details of the driver? VC:@MilindPariwakam” tweeted Nanda.

The video was first posted on Twitter by wildlife enthusiast Milind Pariwakam who has also strongly criticised the motorist. Blackbucks are an endangered species protected under the Wildlife Act.
