Leopards hunting human prey in India
MSNBC |
"Leopards have killed 14 people this year, and 10 last month alone, in Bombay - a city unique in that it almost entirely surrounds a verdant forest. On Sunday night an 18-year-old was dragged from the hut where he slept and a 50-year-old priest was mauled near a temple on the outskirts of Sanjay Gandhi National Park, a 103 sq km (40 sq mile) forest in the northern part of India’s financial capital... Only last year, a four-year-old boy was killed when a leopard scaled the wall of a housing complex and dragged him away while he was playing in the garden... Officials plan to start releasing around 500 pigs and dozens of rabbits in the forest this week in the hopes that will satisfy the hunger of the big cats." [Great. What are they going to do next year? Release 1000 pigs for the additional leopards?]
