PSKOV, Russia, June 10 (UPI) -- A shocked pedestrian in a Russian city captured video of a man casually taking a full-grown leopard for a stroll down a city street.

Alex Treshchev posted a video to YouTube showing the bizarre scene he captured Monday on a street in Pskov: a man walking a leashed leopard like it was a dog.

Treshchev said he filmed the man and his big cat because he didn't think anyone would believe him.

It was later revealed the leopard was a trained animal named Jerry in town for a wildlife-themed photoshoot with a model.
