Lion safari video clip fools TV channels

Submitted by Editor on Wed, 2017-02-01 10:38 Bengaluru: A video clipping of a male lion jumping on a vehicle during safari at Bannerghatta National Park created a flutter in media circles on Tuesday. But the clip turned out to be false alarm as the video is more than a year old! The incident occurred on September 16, 2015 at lion safari, and the entire episode was recorded by another tourist from another vehicle. But a section of electronic media falsely reported that the incident occurred on Jan 31. Sources in the park confirmed that there was no such incident in recent days. "It happens every now and then. If an animal is irritated, it will try to block the vehicle or jump," said sources.
