Tiger saves zookeeper from leopard, the heart of the internet is filled
Zookeepers or animal specialists have one of the most exciting and at the same time dangerous jobs. Not only do you spend time with the wild animals that many people only get to see from afar. A 2015 video has resurfaced online showing a zoo keeper being rescued by a tiger from a leopard attack in an enclosure. The viral clip, shared on Twitter, begins with a zoo keeper petting a white lioness and rubbing her belly.
In the video, different species of wild cats can be seen chilling in the enclosure. You might even notice the tiger lying behind the keeper from afar. After a few frames, a leopard can be seen sprinting toward the man, but the tiger reacted quickly, using its mobility to stop it halfway. Then the leopard jumped up and landed on the ground next to the keeper. Tiger is seen growling at him.
The keeper reprimanded the leopard for his attack and thanked the tiger for saving him from the possible attack.
The video’s caption read, “Tiger saves people from leopard attack.”

Another person commented, “Tiger knew it was coming well in advance – look at 0:45 seconds into the video. The tiger felt it. The leopard acted like he was cool.
Another user added, “Looks like he just wants some attention/to play with and not necessarily eat him.”
The video has been viewed 11.5 million times since it was posted to the social media platform.
According to The Sun, the video shows animal rights activist Eduardo Serio playing with a group of lions at the Black Jaguar White Tiger sanctuary in Mexico. The leopard that attacked Eduardo is called Dharma and the tiger is called Aztlan.
