A shocking video of a person pulling a leopard’s tail has surfaced online. The 20-second clip shared on Twitter by Indian Forest Services (IFS) officer Parveen Kaswan shows a man holding the leopard by its tail and one of its hind legs. The animal tries to free itself from its clutches, but fails when spectators film the action from a distance. The leopard died, according to a text on the video.
The location where the video was shot could not be determined, according to Mr Kaswan, who denounced the act and stressed that wild animals should not be treated in this way. “This is not the way to treat or treat animal friends. They are also living creatures. Be careful,” he wrote.

One user suspected the leopard must be injured. “And I’m damn sure the leopard might be old or injured, otherwise the situation would have been totally different,” he wrote.

Many believed that the men featured in the video should be punished.
It is very unfortunate to see this kind of behavior by people. They must be punished according to the law.
