A leopard strayed into a posh school in the Indian city of Bangalore and kept a group of police personnel, local scientists and forest officials on their toes for about 10 hours on Sunday. It attacked and injured six people before it was finally tranquilized, captured and moved to a wildlife reserve.

Its antics in the school compound and the negligent method employed to capture the animal was recorded by a group of photographers who gathered at the Vibgyor International School after news about its entry broke out. This video footage shows a visibly-irritated animal scaling a tall fence and attacking people at random. Wildlife expert Sanjay Gubbi gets clawed and bitten. Gubbi is a conservation expert whose PhD research dealt with managing leopard-human conflict.
