A video of an intense and deadly encounter between a monitor lizard and two dogs in Uttarakhand has gone viral on social media, leaving many shocked.
In the 1.36-minute clip, which was shared by Facebook user Himanshu Bhatt, a monitor lizard can be seen trying to climb a tree when two dogs approach it. Soon, one of the two canines grabs onto the lizard’s tail to keep it from climbing any further.
The dogs continue to attack and bite the lizard until it finally falls on the ground. However, the reptile continues to fight and ward off the relentless attack by the dogs who try to overpower it.
