Leopards fighting a losing battle for survival in India

Leopards are one of the most graceful and magnificent beasts of prey to roam the earth. Their tawny skin, black and brown spots and sleek, powerful bodies make them a sight to behold.


However, leopards are now fighting a losing battle for survival as more and more of their species are being hunted and killed. In recent weeks, the state of Assam in north-eastern India has been in the news due to rising conflicts between local villagers and leopards. 
But, it is not the savagery of the beasts that will make your blood run cold but the brutality of the people in dealing with their feline enemies.
