http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3710596/Terrifying-video-shows-vicious-leopard-savagely-attacking-Indian-village-injuring-ten-people-including-3-year-old-child.html

Quote: "An Indian village was plunged into fear when a runaway leopard attacked and injured 10 people. Dramatic footage caught the moment the beast mauled two men as it ran through a courtyard. The big cat reportedly emerged from the fields in the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh and entered a house where it savagely tried to drag away a 3-year-old child sitting in his uncle's lap. Thankfully the man, known as Suraj, managed to hold onto the tot and raised the alarm, although the child sustained severe injuries from the mauling. The animal fled to a neighbouring village where it hid in a heap of husk in a house and attacked two unsuspecting women."

Quote: "According to Forest department officials the animal died of cardiac arrest."

Note: Say, that's exactly what's happened to numerous people too - they've gone berserk, rampaged, then dropped dead. Well, leopards aren't immune to hydrogen sulfide any more than people are. So, sounds like this was a neuro-zombied leopard, probably out of its mind and hallucinating...
