KOLKATA — A stray leopard who wandered into the village of Prakash Nagar, near the city of Kolkata, incited panic in villagers who watched forest officials tranquilize and kill the animal after it reportedly injured six people, including policemen and forest guards.

The wildlife officials wearing protective helmets and carrying batons and tranquilizer guns had hoped to drive the cat into a nearby wildlife sanctuary but the leopard hissed and attacked those who came near it, according to the Times of India.
