Let’s face it, the adage three’s a crowd is one of the most-quoted for a reason. And if you’re a honeymooning couple, then heaven help the third. Unless…the couple’s left praying for dear life instead!

Little did this couple honeymooning in Nainital know that they’d remember their stay not just for the usual reasons, but for also because a curious leopard sneaked into their room!

Meerut-based couple Sumit Rathore and his wife Shivani were sleeping in the room when they felt something moving on the bed. Rathore quickly woke up and saw the leopard rush into the washroom. Thanks to his quick thinking, he immediately ran to close the bathroom door. “To my horror, I felt something moving on my bed. It was then that I saw the leopard, which immediately ran inside the bathroom. Even though I was shocked and scared, I quickly jumped out of bed and locked the bathroom door,” he told the Times of India.

The hotel’s owner Amit Sah called the police and forest officials who sent the rescue team but before they could catch hold of the leopard, it escaped out of the bathroom window. Reportedly, the team arrived with tranquiliser guns and a cage but couldn’t catch the leopard.
