Man Eaters of the Himalayas

Would you expect a fuzzy kitty to have a body count greater than the likes of Freddy, Jason and Leatherface combined?

The infamous “Panar Leopard” is one of several big cats throughout history who made bloody names for themselves by picking off Hindu pilgrims traveling the winding, isolated roads of the Himalayas. During attacks, the leopards lunge for the throat or nape of the neck, aiming to sever as many veins as possible.

Hominid skeletons found in Africa and dating back to millions of years ago are said to show puncture marks from leopard teeth. As human settlement swells into previously wild areas, will the number of attacks increase?

These cases are certainly shock to any armchair outdoorsman thinking they are at the top of the food chain.
