Shocking footage emerged from an Indian village shows the moment an Asiatic lioness devouring a cow as forest guards and villagers try to shoo her away.
The lioness had strayed into the Virpur village of Gujarat in western India, some 100 kilometers from her natural habitat Gir forest, in search of food and got hold of a domestic cow.
When villagers spotted the big cat gobbling down the cattle, they raised alarm and informed forest officials for their rescue.
While, the officials managed to shoo her away with the help of police, surprisingly, the lioness returned to the village in the evening to prey on the leftovers of the cow.
The video captured on mobile phones by locals show the lioness sitting with the carcass of the cow tightly-gripped as forest guards hit her with sticks.
