Leopard goes on rampage in India

A leopard that wandered into a city in eastern India went on a rampage, killing one man, swiping off part of another man’s scalp and injuring three other people before authorities tranquilized it.

Neighbors in Gauhati say the leopard attacked a 50-year-old lawyer as he talked on his cellphone Saturday evening outside his house. He was rushed to a hospital where he died Sunday.

Four other people were injured, including a man who had part of his scalp torn off in a dramatic attack captured by a local newspaper photographer.

Gauhati wildlife official Utpal Bora says authorities plan to release the animal at a wildlife park 120 miles (200 kilometers) west of the city.

Conservationists say deforestation is increasingly pushing leopards into populated areas.
