Two Dogs vs A Huge Monitor Lizard In This Viral Video From Uttarakhand
The video shows the dogs dragging the monitor lizard down from the tree it was trying to climb.
The struggle, which lasted for more than three minutes, ended in favour of the monitor lizard as the people filming the scene managed to drive the dogs away. Take a look at the video below:

The lizard reportedly escaped from the harrowing encounter unhurt, thanks to the intervention of the people filming the unusual scene. It was filmed scurrying to safety after the dogs were shooed away - though some on social media criticised the intervention for interfering in the natural food chain.
Monitor lizards are large lizards native to Africa, Asia, and Oceania. Around 80 species of monitor lizards are recognised, with the Bengal monitor (also known as common Indian monitor) being most widely distributed in the Indian subcontinent.Click for more
