well...sort of.

Here is a short doc I did about my encounter with two snow leopards atacking a dzo (part cow -part yak). At the time, in 2004, it was the first footage ever recorded of snow leopards attacking in the wild. Since then, Planet Earth has gotten some absolutely incredible footage of snow leopards attacking blue sheep. However, this is still the only evidence (apart from anecdotal) that they will attack animals more than 8 times their size.

I was actually there shooting The Arc of India, a film on the evolution and disevolution of all things in the Universe, using the north of India as a backdrop, and was a bit ill-prepared to capture the leopard footage. If I had known how much it would have been worth at the time...

Apart from some stilted narration and melodrama at its finest (or grimmest), please enjoy :)
