Leopard kills fifth girl in Nepal
Telegraph - UK ^ | February 9, 2012

Posted on 02/09/2012 12:46:06 PM PST by Cincinatus' Wife

A man-eating leopard has claimed its fifth victim in just two months after dragging away and devouring a 14-year-old girl in Nepal.

...In the latest attack, the unnamed teenager was cutting grass in the forest near her home in Baitadi district, on the border with India, when she was attacked by the animal, said Bishnu Bahadur Karki, a local deputy superintendent of police.

"The locals found the body torn into pieces and eaten below the neck at the forest area yesterday," he told AFP.

Karki said three young girls and a 35-year-old pregnant woman had been killed in the weeks leading up to yesterday's attack.

Police believed the same animal was responsible for all the deaths.

"The leopard has continuously been victimising and terrorising the people of Pancheshwor village. We requested the district forest office to allow us to kill it but they refused, saying that the law does not provide such permission," Karki told AFP.

"Our request to have the leopard handed over to a zoo has also been rejected. The villagers and police are trying hard to take that leopard into custody."

Villagers claim three more people have been killed by the leopard in nearby settlements on the Indian side of the border.....

Custody? Get out the pawcuffs and arrest the leopard. Be sure to read it its rights.

Maybe they are waiting for PETA to give the okay.

If one is not the top of the food chain in the area of one’s domicile, one may want to take appropriate protective measures when out and about. I’m just sayin’!

They should talk to the EnviroWienies here in the West about how they can all get along. Wolf-introducers surely have ideas about that. And then the grizzly-singer (later, snack).

Captured but shot while trying to escape...
End of story.

Of critters like this it is said, “At some time during
the hunt, the leopard is hunting YOU.”

Throw it in a cell with a water buffalo named Bubba.

Actually, it seems to be a woman-eating leopard. Perhaps the authorities would agree to kill it for being anti-feminist.

These people aren’t left with many options. How long will it take before a hunter tracks-down and kills this man-eater? Thank God we don’t live in the third world!

Unless specifically allowed by law, everything is prohibited.

Coming sooner than you think to America.

The big cat ate M Douglas for lunch. Literally. Val Kilmer survived. After surviving The Saint he was able to survive anything.

Very simple. Posters are sorry for the loss of the girl but are consoled by the fact that leopards are an endangered species and human beings aren’t.

How do they shoot with a garden stick?

They need to surround it and light a ring of accidental lightning fire..
