According to a video of a mob walking along and even taking selfies with a leopard is being widely circulated on social media platforms. In the video, this is seen that a mob petting and playing with a leopard, taking selfies with it, and even one among them trying to ride on it is being circulated to claim that the leopard drank alcohol from the distillery of raw liquor and forgot that he is a lion in Taragarh village of Madhya Pradesh’s Dewas district, on the banks of the Kali Sindh River.
The villagers initially were scared of it but later found that it was unwell from its activities. Then they gathered around the leopard and played with it.
