A video of a leopard crossing the road in Margalla Hills is doing the round on social media.

The animal was captured on camera by a group of men travelling in a car in the nighttime.

The video suggests that the men were actually looking for the leopard and  seemed to know exact location  where the animal  might be found in the hills.

Posted on Twitter on Friday, the video has been seen thousands of times  with people sharing their own experiences of coming across the animal in the area.

"The poor creatures, loosing their habitat. Saw one many years ago just past Murree on our way to Nathiagali," wrote a user Asimah.

Another user wrote that the leapards used to be spotted in Islamabad city until late 90s.
