A leopard died Tuesday after mauling 11 people in West Bengal, India. The male cat had apparently wandered into the village of Prakash Nagar from a nearby national park. It attacked 6 villagers before turning on forest guards and policemen who tried to drive it back into the park. One policeman and 4 forest guards were injured. At least one of the wounded is in critical condition.
Villagers took refuge on rooftops while authorities attempted to tranquilize the leopard. They were able to catch him after he was wounded by a police officer. The leopard was taken to a nearby veterinary office for treatment, but he died of his wounds.
