Leopard on the loose injures six while prowling around school in India

A leopard which entered a school in the Indian city of Bangalore injured six people trying to capture it. It took 10 hours to catch and tranquillise the animal, which entered the Vibgyor International school on Sunday.

A scientist, a forestry employee and a TV camera man were among those hurt, although all the injuries were minor.

    It’s what happens when you have so many kids that there’s no room left for wildlife to avoid people.

    • Wild life is everywhere in India.

      That’s like saying bear attacks here are because of overpopulation.

      Encroachment, however, is another matter.

    The man-eating leopard of Rudraprayag spent 8 years prowling the Himalayan villages of colonial India and was reputed to have gobbled up 125 people:

    In my younger days I bagged at least one cougar per week.

      Cougars are easy pray though, just hang out at any small town bar till closing time and there is usually one hoping to get caught.
