You grab your jacket and leave the house with the sole intention of picking up some milk and possibly a morning paper and then much to your dismay you have to fight off a huge leopard in a bike shed. Christ, Monday’s are a nightmare.
That’s exactly what happened to this poor bloke when the big cat wandered into the residential area of Guwahati, Assam in Eastern India and attacked four people, killing one. Unfortunately for the man pictured above he received a rather horrendous injury as he was scalped by the Leopards large claws, (which you can see below), and was later rushed to hospital and treated for his injuries.
No thanks of course to the individual who instead of putting his camera down to try to distract the animal and thereby maximising the man’s chances of escaping unscalped, continued to click away in the hope his pictures would become an Internet viral sensation. Such is the world we live in.
The cat was later tranquilized by wildlife officials and is scheduled to be released at a wildlife park.
