    New Delhi (Sputnik): Whether sunbathing or night walks, leopards are frequently in the news in India for venturing out into public spaces and even visiting residential areas.

    A leopard was spotted chasing cows on a street late at night outside Devprayag police station in the hilly Indian state of Uttarakhand.

    The CCTV footage shows a few cattle on the street suddenly start running just as a leopard comes chasing from behind. Upon hearing the commotion, a policeman comes outside but immediately runs back in after spotting the leopard.

    ​The officer in charge at the police station, Mahipal Singh Rawat, told media he has informed the forest department about the situation. The residents have also demanded strict action against those leaving their cattle outside in the city area.
