According to the AP, several people tried to drive the animal back towards a nearby wildlife sanctuary ... but the leopard turned aggressive and pounced on some of the men.

Villagers reportedly used knives, stones and batons to strike the animal -- and eventually shot it with a tranquilizer gun.

The leopard is said to have died from knife wounds suffered in the incident.

That leopard looks like it's ready to kill the guy.

Fangs right around the neck, legs wrapped around its prey...

If I was that dude I think I'd have trouble sleeping for a couple days.

don't take them out of their natural habitat, the poor thing was probably scared and doing what came natural, it's a shame it had to die

Ugh... Who are the vigilantes that knifed the leopard to death? A tranquilizer gun would've taken care of the problem.

Idiot villagers should've just went inside and let authorities deal with the problem.

Do they plan on cooking and eating the leopard, as well? I heard leopard penis goes for alot in China's markets.

Stupid a-holes! Leave the animals alone or suffer the consequences! Idiotic human beings try their damnedest to prove how superior they are... by using guns and other weapons. Useless freaks!

That poor Leopard! It looks so beautiful.
This is why people should leave wild animals alone. Let them live their lives peacefully in the wild with other animals.

Don't and can't blame the Leopard. They are carnivors. They eat meat. Humans are not natural prey but when their territory and prey source keeps getting taken away by humans, why is this so shocking? This cat was hungry.

Humans kill for so much less, animals kill for food.
