CCTV footage that has gone viral online shows a leopard walking the corridors of a medical college in Karnataka. According to the newspaper Sakshi Post, the leopard strayed into the hostel campus of a medical college in Chamarajanagar.
Escaping a furious chase by a leopard down a hillock, a large spotted deer fell on a slum roof, crashed through it and landed in the tiny single room of the bewildered family of Savita Singh, officials said.
As many as 450 endangered snow leopards have been killed each year since 2008, a report on the fate of the mountain cats estimates.
Only 4,000 to 7,000 of the animals are thought to remain in the 12 mountainous Asian countries they inhabit.
