A Kathmandu resident alerted the police around dawn after he spotted the big cat in the compound of his house. Police called in zoo and wildlife officials who tracked the animal as it clambered over rooftops and padded through backyards, while local residents watched from their balconies.

    Watch how close this Leopard comes to ripping this hunter apartTrue there isn't any leopard hunting in Cali, but you may come across a cougar. Hunting any type of cats is very dangerous, but after seeing footage like this, it might just be the deadliest. So I guess, if you're into this type of adrenaline pumping hunt, this is it. So imagine being there in a similar environment. Dogs barking, your adrenaline is pumping and you know that cat is hiding somewhere in the brush watching you. Yet you continue on, step by step, closing in on what you know...

    An unlucky leopard got more than it bargained for after trying to catch and eat a honey badger. These pictures show the leopard lamenting its overconfidence when the smaller beast lived up to Mark Twain's old adage: 'It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.' After spotting the badger from a distance, the leopard managed to rush down inside its burrow and drag it outside for what it thought was going to be an easy meal. But despite catching its prey by the neck, the tough mammal managed to...

    An Indian woman armed only with farm tools is stable in hospital after killing a leopard that attacked her. Kamla Devi, 56, sustained multiple bites, cuts and fractures during the half-hour battle. She had been fetching water in northern Uttarakhand state when the leopard pounced on her from nearby bushes - she fought back with a sickle and spade. "I thought I was dead but I did not lose patience and courage," she told reporters after her lucky escape.

    When it comes to wildlife photography, the Snow Leopard is almost unicorn-like. No, it’s not mythical, but it’s almost as hard to capture one of these infamous “gray ghosts of the Himalayas” on camera as it is to track down a creature that doesn’t actually exist.

    A camera trap snapped the first-ever pictures of the elusive snow leopard in Uzbekistan. Even better, it caught not one, but two of the endangered cats on camera. The new images of the cats released by conservation groups Panthera and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) confirm that there are at least two individual snow leopards in the Gissar Nature Reserve, a protected part of the Pamir Mountains that can be visited only for scientific research. Uzbekistan, which is about the size of California, is one of 12 countries in Asia where snow leopards still roam through rugged mountainous terrain. It's estimated...

    Many researchers had assumed the traps were fairly modern, but Porat's colleagues were curious about their provenance and asked her to analyze the traps. Porat used a technique called optical dating to measure the amount of radiation that had been absorbed from the environment in two of the leopard traps. By comparing that with background levels of radiation in the area, which have changed very little over the millennia, the team could determine when the traps were created. One of the traps was about 5,000 years old, while the other was 1,600 years old. That suggests this same technology was...

    “A leopard mauled at least three people in the northeastern Indian city of Guwahati on Saturday after the ferocious feline ran into a house and attacked the residents,” The New York Daily News reports. The BBC tells us one of those persons has died. We learn that “wildlife personnel” with a tranquilizer gun took care of the big cat—after the attacks. We also learn that this is not the first time in recent years such attacks have occurred, and that they are on the increase. So why did Indian citizens have to wait for the authorities to show up after...

    India shares its country with leopards, which is both a blessing and a curse. Another leopard-on-human attack has taken place, and left one man dead, and four injured, including a man that was scalped by the cat. The leopard strolled into Gauhati located in southeast India and started his rampage of killing. The Belfast Telegraph has a picture of the cat attacking a man.

    Srinagar, Jan 17, KONS: A Kulgam villager battled a leopard bare-handed for twenty minutes in a desperate but brave fight for life, and was left with deep wounds in his face and chest in the ordeal. The leopard from nearby forests had pounced on 47-year-old Israeel Gorsi in the Batpora area, some 20 km from Kulgam town, when he was working in his compound, with the clear intention to kill, reports said. But Gorsi fought off the attack unaided for nearly half-an-hour, and his screams brought villagers to the scene, on seeing whom the beast tried to drag its bleeding...

    It's a role reversal not commonly seen, but then the cat chasing this dog is a little larger than most. Salati, a ten-month-old leopard, and her best friend, golden retriever Tommy, like nothing more than to run amok before settling down for a friendly cuddle. The odd couple were reared together at Glen Afric Country Lodge near Pretoria in South Africa.

    A man carrying a leopard print stuffed animal put security officials at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport on alert Tuesday night. Airport officials said the man walked into Delta Airlines' Building C at around 9:00 p.m. and was confronted by an employee who asked to see his identification badge. The man apparently responded by showing the employee the stuffed animal and saying, "This is all you need to see," according to airport officials. The man then fled. Airport police notified the Transportation Security Administration and worked with Delta security officials to look for the man in and around the building,...
