If anything, lions are easily one of the most terrifying animals to ever exist. However, one man showed no signs of fear and instead, made the lion run just by brandishing a stick.
The video was shared on Instagram by a page called ‘animals_powers’, with the caption: “Lion scared by man.”
In the clip, an adult lion can be seen in the middle of a forest. Meanwhile, a man, looking rather angry, walks towards the lion while swinging a stick.
The man, who looked unfazed by the presence of the lion, was nonchalantly showing it the stick. The lion can then be seen running away from the man, and into the forest.
The unusual video has racked up over 7 lakh views and left the internet divided. While some users were simply stunned at the sight of a lion scared of a man, many others did criticise the man for his antics.
“Look like the lion is in a playful mood or else that man gets eaten,” one user commented.
“He can’t be treating a lion like that,” another user commented.
“That lion is just walking a little bit so that it can have more space to eat the man completely,” a third user said.
It appears from the clip that the man is a lion-tamer or has known the lion for a long time and the two seem to be just having a good time.
Recently, another video went viral showing an African lion can be seen clinging to a tree barely a few feet above the ground while a gang of buffaloes looks on from a distance in the background.
The lion evidently appears to have climbed the tree out of fear and seems to be clinging on for dear life. But after a few seconds of clinging onto the tree, the cowering lion becomes tired and started to gradually slide down the bark as the video abruptly ends.
