A milkman residing near Gir who was travelling with his cows successfully chased away a lioness. Afraid that the lioness may target its cows, the man ran towards it with full force.
Surprised by the man's sudden spurt, the beast was terrified and fled the scene. A passerby recorded the man's valiant act in his mobile phone.
The Gir region is one of the most important protected areas in Asia as it is the home of the Asiatic lion. In recent years, however, as the lion population has grown, man-animal conflict has increased in the region.
