Leopard That Injured 5 at School Escapes From Zoo And Is On The Loose
A leopard that terrorized wildlife authorities while running amok in a high school has escaped its cage and is on the loose. Again.
A leopard that mauled five people on a rampage through an Indian high school is on the loose again after it escaped from a zoo, officials said Monday.
The 100-pound wild cat may have squeezed through the bars of its enclosure at the Bannerghatta Zoo in the southern city of Bangalore, authorities said.
About 50 people are frantically searching for the leopard, said state chief wildlife warden Ravi Ralph.
The leopard escaped Sunday night, shortly after feeding time, officials said. The zoo does not have security cameras, but investigators are trying to determine how the animal got loose.
"Even in the cage, the feline was restless and appeared agitated," Ralph said.
The animal led wildlife authorities on an hours-long chase through a school last week, and mauled at least five people before being shot multiple times by tranquilizer guns. Authorities originally said six people had been injured.
The school was closed at the time.
