In a video that surfaced on Twitter, a group of people in Madhavpur village in the Indian state of Gujarat were chased by a lion, which ran furiously towards them. The video, which has garnered 6.2 K views, has been shared by a senior forest official, Susanta Nanda. While some can be seen running helter-skelter as the lion approached them, others chose to make a video of it.

This is not the first the time a lion has been seen on the loose in India. Last year, a pride of lions was spotted roaming freely in Junagadh district at night. The unusual act was caught on camera, but no one was hurt in the incident. It was not known how the animal strayed from the forest to the village, which is almost 100 kilometres from Gir National Park.
