Don't know how you could kill something that looks so beautiful like that with all of it's spots. It's so sad :(

@ ablogintherough: it was not Jim Corbett - but the maneating leopard that had killed four hundred people...

That is certainly scary, over 400 people killed by the leopard. Fortunately, such "serial maneaters" are rare, I think.

Do not be absurd. That was the estimated kill count in grand total over its entire career as a man-eater. Its true kill count was probably fewer still.

Others asked how one could kill such a beautiful animal... Tell that to the mothers of the children it killed. Stupid.
