A leopard mauled eleven people in Prakash Nagar, India, yesterday as villagers fought back with "knives, stones and batons." Finally, the jungle cat was shot with a tranquilizer by forest guards and later died of its wounds. Makes you grateful to live in a place where the greatest danger posed by wildlife is pigeon poop.
