Leopard Escaped in India and Attacks a Man
A viral video circling online shows people laid out net to catch and escaped Leopard. The frighted animal breaks free from the net and attacks a man, thought it’s not clear that how bad the Leopard attack was and how badly the man was injured.
Leopard Attacks in India are still relatively common, and in some regions of the country leopards kill more humans than all other large carnivores combined. Human-Leopard conflict tends to increase during periods of drought or when the leopard’s natural prey becomes scarce. Shrinking leopard habitat and growing human populations also increase conflict.
Often Leopards are hunted illegally, and their body parts are smuggled in the wildlife trade for medicinal practices and decoration.
