Footage shows the clever cat quietly creeping through grass with its head ducked down.
Stooping low, the leopard is almost undetectable as its spots blend in with its surroundings and its paws ever closer to its prey.
Greedily gobbling away, the gazelle and its friend have absolutely no idea that the predator is inching closer, continuing to tuck into their grass lunch.
But it isn’t long before one of them becomes very aware.
“That leopard was almost invisible in the build up. Such a ninja”
Suddenly, the covert cat speeds towards the creature, opening its jaws and going straight for the jugular.
The gazelle bleats for help as its mate runs off and it is spun 360 degrees by its attacker who then wrestles it to the ground.
The leopard then pins its prey to the grass and feasts on its neck as the gazelle desperately flails its legs around in the air.
Over quarter of a million people have watched the footage – filmed in an unknown location – and viewers were thrilled by what they saw.
“That leopard was almost invisible in the build up. Such a ninja,” wrote one user.
Another commented: “What a fantastic cat. With skills like that it could get up to all sorts.”

But a third disliked the predator’s actions, adding: “That leopard just made me cry my eyeballs out. What an ass. Poor gazelle.”
Another leopard recently wowed viewers with its incredible ninja abilities while climbing a mountain.
The cat fell a dizzying 50ft to what could have been a rocky death but amazingly survived.
Not only that but after the plunge the leopard crept towards a man filming it with a hungry glint in its eye.
