It’s no secret that tigers and leopards are common in India and frequently enter populated areas. Every year amateur footage emerges of locals trying to capture the predators in urban neighbourhoods and it always amazes me how
stupid brave some of them are when confronting them. Plenty screaming and putting bodies on the line in a bid to sedate the cats before they injure or kill civilians. The most recent footage captured at a school in Bangalore resulted in several people getting mauled by a leopard including wildlife experts and a photographer who got grabbed trying to jump over a fence, but escaped by fending off the big cat with his camera.
Here’s the footage.
That photographer is damn lucky. You can go see all the pics at the Bangalore Mirror HERE.
