VIDEO: Leopard ‘invades’ housing colony in India, mauls a man
INDORE, India: A leopard ran amok in the Indian city of Indore couple of days ago after first getting stuck in a building there overnight.
The big cat was spotted by passers-by on their way to work when the animal was stalking through the streets, sparking mass panic as residents fled to their homes for safety.
It came after a large crowd had gone to see the animal being removed from the building it was trapped in.
Footage shows a few men trying to capture the beast with a net outside the door of the building.
Before they can surround it with the netting, the leopard suddenly leaps outside and lunges at the nearest person in a sickening attack caught on camera.
It then turns its attention to the gathered crowd and chases after other people, attempting to bite them.
Forest Department officials were then called to the scene, and desperately tried to capture the animal.
It took officials three hours to catch the fleeing animal with a tranquilliser darts after shooting and missing it a total of five times.
The leopard was later shifted to a zoo.
