A shocking video has emerged from Assam, where a group of men is seen hacking a leopard to death after it attacked and injured two people.
The incident took place at Ligiri Pukhuri area near Nazira in the oil rich Sivasagar district on Wednesday.
Assam forest minister Parimal Suklabaidya said that the man-animal conflict has increased in the state due to the shrinking of forest cover. Meanwhile, the officers have registered a case in connection with the incident.
The big cats are listed as 'vulnerable' by the IUCN Red List of threatened species.
