A bounty has been offered to anyone able to hunt down a leopard that has killed over a dozen people.
Despite a search by more than 100 soldiers and police officers the rogue leopard remains at large, residents of Nepal's remote western region have been under threat from the creature for over a year. A reward of 25,000 rupees is being offered to anyone who can catch the culprit whether it be dead or alive.
"In the beginning, we wanted to capture it alive," said a government official. "But the security personnel who returned from the search said that thousands of villagers have been terrorised."
"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."
