Mother goose outsmarts a leopard

Footage has captured the incredible moment a goose outsmarts a prowling leopard on a game reserve in South Africa.

A male leopard can be seen hunting a group of Egyptian Geese on the banks of a waterhole.

One of the geese clearly has chicks nearby and she proceeds to lure the leopard away from her babies by faking an injury.

Once the goose evades the leopard she quickly runs back to her family.

Watch what happens in the video above.
