Video of 7 lions roaming in Gujarat’s Junagadh turns viral

In a recent incident, a pride of 7 lions got spotted roaming on a road on Friday night at Junagadh in Gujarat. This road is very close to the popular Gir National Park and Wildlife Sanctuary. The Gir National Park and Wildlife Sanctuary is home to the rare Asiatic lions, and there are several lions that have been conserved in this wildlife park.

Initially nobody noticed the 7 lions on the road, but once they were seen a passerby started shooting the video of the lions roaming in the Bhavnath area of the city and he immediately uploaded the video on social media. The video became an instant hit and started getting shared too much and in the video we can see that the lions are searching for their food on a rainy night.


The social media users were really shocked to see this video as it was a huge risk to the human life, as the 7 lions started casually roaming on the roads.

Fortunately no humans were affected by the presence of these 7 lions on the road and the man who shot this video might be courageous enough. The road usually have small amount of vehicles passing through it, and none of the vehicles were able to spot the pride of seven lions that were roaming on the roads.


As per the last census of the Asiatic lions that was taken in 2015, there are around 523 lions in and around the Gir Wildlife Sanctuary that is located in the Saurashtra region of Gujarat.

As soon as the video of the lions standing in the road went viral, the forest officials were also alerted by the local residents. The forest officials came to the scene and they took back the lions to the sanctuary and thereby removing the fear among the local residents.
