Despite being the top predator, the leopard suffered a disastrous defeat due to bad decisions and mercilessly beaten by wild boars.
Leopards are one of the top predators of the animal world, not only in Africa, America, where they are also cold-blooded killers with the ability to stalk and finish their prey quickly.
However, things do not always go smoothly, sometimes there will be unexpected uncertainties. And the case below is a prime example.
The main character this time is a leopard in Yala National Park in Sri Lanka. Its wandering footsteps on its hunting path caught the attention of photographer Chanaka Peryra.
After a moment of hesitation, it decided, closing in and waiting for an opportunity to attack the nearby wild boar family.
However, this is a fatal mistake, due to the large number of wild boars, they are animals with very protective instincts.
Whether they themselves or their fellows are in danger, they risk their lives to their enemies. This is also the reason why 3 adult wild boars frantically attack leopards.
And the poor hunter could do nothing but endure the pounding attacks and try to escape.
The opportunity has come, the moment of distraction between attacks is the best time to run away. But the leopard’s body was in so much pain that it couldn’t do it anymore.
So in the end, “prey” was held and beaten again.
Painful, exhausted to the extreme, it seems that the leopard gives up everything and just waits for the opponent to continue to torture.
Luckily for it, seeing no resistance from the enemy, the wild boars stopped not long after that. But that was enough for the leopard to suffer countless injuries from the fangs and powerful butts of this capricious animal.
