Leopard and man

Dreaded Leopard attack on a police man frame by frame.

This news and photos were published in largest circulated bengali news daily"Ananda Bazar Patrika" ON 20/07/11. Crime scene was at "Limbu Basti"near Siliguri some one eighty kilometres away from my home ton Cooch behar,on 19/07/11 morning.The full grown male leopard ventured out from forest near by,to the village.Forest officers were informed by police soon.Dart gun specialist Kanchan Banerjee came at once with dart gun,net and his team geared up with helmets protectcive jackets etc.They know from their long experience that a frightened,cornered full grown leopard is most deadliest of animals. Eventually they netted the beast, but in between it wounded a number of people seriously, including police,villagers and forest guards. Sorry again, the beast couldn't survive and died in exhaustion
