The video from Saudi Arabia has gone viral.

It was an unbelievable moment for a Saudi family when they spotted a lion on the boundary wall of their house just when they were preparing to slaughter Eid al Adha sacrifices.

Haitham Khaled filmed the big cat atop the wall and shared the video on social media where it went viral instantly. The footage shows the lion looking straight into the camera and showing its teeth as it roars a little to scare away the family.

Khaled said that it is normal to see cats or dogs during the time of sacrifice but the family was surprised when a lion entered their yard, Saudi24news reported.
