LODI (CBS SF) – A father filming a visit to the Micke Grove Zoo in Lodi with his son reacted with surprise when a snow leopard stalked and ate a squirrel that wandered into the animal’s enclosure.

The incident, which was taped and posted on YouTube, appeared to alarm the father much more than his young son, who could be seen watching intently and occasionally smiling.

The man with the camera repeatedly voiced his concern saying, “Oh no…oh dear god no,” but continued filming as the leopard began to devour the squirrel.

Gawker first noticed the video of the pouncing incident, which was posted by aubell282.
