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.

Ugh... dunno if anyone else noticed the wound on the leopard's left forepaw. Looks painful.

Got a feeling this leopard didn't pass gently into the night.

Idiots. That leopard was beautiful. They shouldn't have disturbed or killed it. Morons. Why didn't they tranquilize the leopard before trying to move it? Haven't they heard of the instinctive fight or flight response of predators? Retards. Poor leopard. Sad. Stupid is as stupid does.

That leopard had more to give to the World than those dirty, toothless, rat-loving disgrace to the human race idiots of india. Can someone say "plague" PLEASE....

You would think after it attacked the first person the rest of the people would have went inside! That would have been the smart thing to do! Oh no they all have to try to be a hero and stab and hit the poor animal further antagonising it!
I feel badly that they were attacked but maybe they should have went inside. Now there are 11 injured and one dead leopard.
Next time they should try using common sense when dealing with wild animal!
