An endangered snow leopard on Thursday chased a group of foreign tourists, while they were skiing in the snow-covered slopes of Gulmarg, Kashmir. A video of this encounter posted on Facebook by a member of the group has gone viral.
The five-member tourist group comprising of three women and two men along with a guide, has been in Gulmarg since January 31 and hails from Australia, Holland and the US.
An Australian resident, Owen Lansburry who is on a maiden visit to Kashmir, captured the moment. He described the experience as exciting and thrilling.
“I was skiing behind a friend when we saw the leopard and was very excited. The leopard was more frightened than I was. It was hiding in the snow and was watching us and waiting for a moment to run,” the 42-year-old tourist told The Indian Express.
