Sleeping man's close encounter with leopard

This is the moment a sleeping man cheats death when a wild leopard checks him out before walking away after straying into a petrol station in India.

In CCTV footage, the man is seen sleeping on a chair beside the pumps as the big cat strolls around the petrol station.

Villagers in Maletha, in the northern state of Uttarakhand, have asked forest officials to capture the animal as it remains a threat to locals during the night.
