Animal attacks: Leopard injures six during 10-hour struggle to remove cat from school
BANGALORE / INDIA — What the heck is a leopard doing roaming the halls of Vibgyor International school in Bangalore India? The 8-year-old male cat was spotted on security video, either looking for a meal or an education.
Six people were injured by the leopard during efforts to remove the animal from school grounds.
The 10-hour struggle to remove the cat concluded around 8:15 p.m. when tranquilizer darts finally took full effect. The cat was taken to a national park where it was released.
India is home to roughly 12,000 to 14,000 leopards. A wildlife official told the BBC that the leopard may have strayed into the school from a nearby forest.
Fortunately, no students were at the school on Sunday during the time that the leopard was roaming the halls. All six people were treated for minor injuries.
