Man jumps off roof to avoid being attacked by a leopard in India

A forest ranger was forced to jump off a roof to avoid being attacked by a leopard in India last week.

According to India Express, a leopard wandered into the Kuruli village in the Kantabanji forest area of Odisha, terrifying and attacking villagers in the process.

At one point the big cat ended up inside of a building and forest department rangers were attempting to trap the animal when it emerged onto the building's roof.

The leopard then charged a ranger on the roof, forcing the man to jump off to avoid the attack.

After 12 hours, the leopard was eventually captured, but it managed to injure three people, including the ranger, in the ordeal.

Thankfully, none of the injuries were life-threatening, and the animal is reportedly being relocated to the Nandankanan Zoo in Bhubaneswar.
