Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Black bear and leopard square up in tense confrontation” – below is their description.

Footage shows the moment a sloth bear appears out of some woods and walks towards where a leopard is resting on the ground. As soon as the bear comes into the vicinity of its rival, it quickly stands up on its hind legs in an attempt to scare the animal. Unmoved by the bear’s threats, the leopard stands up and squares off with the bear. After some tense growling and hissing however, the bear appears to back down and drifts off towards the forest cover, leaving the carnivore behind. The footage was captured in the Kumana National Park on Sri Lanka’s east coast.
