Nepal offered a bounty on Thursday for anyone who could hunt down a leopard that has killed more than a dozen people in the past year in the country's remote western region.

The 25,000-rupee (£185) prize, several months' wages for the average Nepali, will go to anyone who can bring in the animal dead or alive, after more than 100 police and soldiers failed to capture it.

I can only imagine what it would be like if one of our mountain lions developed a taste for human.  I would want it hunted down too.

Hell, I'd eat a leopard for that much.

Here is a little bit more information this morning.

Whatever animal it is, it is one opportunistic feeder that has this human hunting down to a science or art.

Poor leopard. 7 billion people in the world. I think we can do with a dozen or so who chose to move into leopard country. In India people set up villages snack in the middle of tiger country and kill the tigers when one or two villagers get eaten. No sympathy. Only thing that can eat me in Australia is a great white shark. I've made it clear I want no revenge if it happens,

That`s a good point . It never hits the Headlines when someone in India is eaten by a Great White Shark.............

Yeah, I read that article before coming to this site this morning.
Something about human blood being more salty than wild animals, and once they taste it, they prefer humans.

I`m surprised that the American Military hasn`t signed it up for active service .

Camper alert! Take diuretics to dilute blood salt-content. :passifier:

I'm guessing this isn't a snow leopard, a different species - which I heard never eats humans.

I am another anonymous face in the crowd. I am just another tiny wheel in the machinery of the world I live in.

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.
