A school in Gujarat had an unexpected guest in their vicinity when a lion sneaked into the building while looking for food. The Asiatic lion, which was trying to make a kill in an adjoining livestock enclosure in Paswala village of Una, was later rescued by the forest officials.
A video of the incident, which has now gone viral on social media, was shared by Indian Forest Service officer Susanta Nanda along with a caption that read, “Lion comes to school to get himself enrolled.” The lion was later rescued and released back in the forest.

Since being shared online, the viral clip has been flooded with comments. While many joked about the lion looking for his “mid-day meal”, others tweeted that they were glad that there were no students in the school.
the most chilled capture operation I’ve seen. Wish we could see the part where – presumably – the lion gets fed up with lessons and walks into the cage https://t.co/YLCz9oxT7e
