Quick-thinking boy traps leopard to diffuse dangerous situation

A boy sitting on an office couch near an open door was suddenly confronted by a leopard that entered the room just a few feet away from him.

Mohit Ahire, 12, was playing a video game on a phone in the booking office of the Sai Celebration wedding hall in Malegaeon, India, when the encounter took place on Tuesday morning, as reported by the Times of India.

A surveillance camera captured what happened and it happened posted on X.

“The leopard was so close,” Ahire told the Times of India. “There was hardly any space between the leopard and me. He walked into the inner booth of the office just ahead of me. I was scared, but quietly managed to get off the couch and sneak out of the office. I closed the door behind me.”

Ahire is the son of a guard at the wedding hall. After capturing the leopard, he told his father, who alerted the authorities.

The leopard was eventually tranquilized and relocated by a team from Nashik city.

The calmness Ahire displayed is truly remarkable.
