It's certainly a magnificent creature.  It's sad that it has a bounty on it's head.  I understand the fear but if I lived in an area with predatory animals I wouldn't let my 4 year old (or any age child or loved one) out of my site... ever.  I would also carry a weapon, even if it's just a large stick and vinegar.

Uh... that is Napal. Some children have no shoes and often play or gather stuff in the nearby forrest without incident.

It would just take one incident for me to become over protective and not let my children out of my site.  Especially a 4 year old.

I'm sure there are lots of moms in the area that are doing just what I said I would do.  Why wouldn't they?  

My initial comment was mostly about the 4 yr old that was killed, admittedly, there are no details but I was simply stating, in that situation, my children would not ever be outside without me and a weapon.

That`s a good point . It never hits the Headlines when someone in India is eaten by a Great White Shark.............
Nah. You may be missing the point. Wild animals need territory too. We shouldn't kill them for doing what comes natural. Build a fence to stop leopards, or buy a  shark shield like I have when I go diving. Don't just kill them all the time. Simplistic and stupid. Hell, catch it and send it to a zoo. In the numbers game they are more important..

Often animals that prey on humans are old, crippled or otherwise unable to capture their normal prey. We are slow, don't have fangs or claws, so we make easy prey to a starving predator.
