A leopard attacked 15 people including 3 policemen and 2 officials from the Department of Forest in Gothatar on Wednesday. Fair enough, there was a need to put the animal in control. Do we not have tranquilizers? Tranquilizing such wild animals is definitely a better idea than killing it. Furthermore, parading the dead animal around the streets… I am so saddened to see this. That was simply unnecessary. What have we proved with such an act? That we humans, we Nepalis are the wild ones? That we do not have the utmost sincerity to respect an animal that has just lost its life?

Please have compassion for all beings…

An article on Republica sheds more light on what really happened, have read:

According to inspector Surya Prakash Subedi, chief of Metropolitan Police Sector Koteshwar, the leopard, which was spotted in Gothatar VDC of Kathmandu district in the wee hours of Wednesday, ran amok clawing at every one on its way after being attacked by the locals. 

As some of the locals angered the leopard by charging with batons and throwing stones, veterinary doctors from the Central Zoo, Jawalakhal, could not tranquilize it. The leopard was shot dead by the police later. 

“After the technicians from the zoo failed to tame the leopard, we had to kill it,” said Subedi. “Had we not killed the leopard, it could have caused more damage.” 

According to Subedi, the police shot at the leopard twice. And, when the leopard fell to the ground, angry locals thrashed it with batons, stones and bricks. The dead leopard was taken away by the staffers from the District Forest Office (DFO) of Kathmandu.

  1. Again we have next animal killed but i guess this is wrong .We nepalese are very educated in a sense to kill rare animals .Hope upcoming 2070 BS. won’t be disturbating with the news like this.

  2. It’s different over there than it is where you are. If you look at their surroundings, it’s not the most glorifying place. Don’t be so quick to judge.
    If a leopard started attacking your family, would you search for a tranquilizer? I don’t think so.

    • I agree that they had to kill it.. But why the Parade? what’s the joy for?

      Leopard dekhey si na bhagey ra k ko dhunga handai basnu parney rey tyo jhattha haru lai..

      Even if it had bit me It’s his nature. I’m the one disturbing him.

    • Killing an animal which can’t be tamed is acceptable for a moment… but parading around the streets with the body of that innocent animal….. is in the nature of insane and shameless people… it proves which ones are wild animals… the one which is killed or the ones which are dancing around the streets with the dead body after killing the poor being…
      ITS A SHAME….

  3. @ Rydan, I think a leopard won’t attack anyone unless provoked. Will you hit me if i don’t hit you..

    Its clear that leopard was no threat, look at the animals misbehaving it even after its dead..

  4. No brain, no common sense, dumb asses, stupid, hero of zeroes, give no meaning at all…………………..

    what else can I say to Nepalese people? They never learn, grow and develop. I’m sick of this.

    They think they are very highly educated with Bsc, Msc, MBA and Phd, but they all don’t actually have brain at all to be honest. Our societies and communities has been destroyed so badly but bad rumours, back stabbers and dictators.

    Our people never learn. I promise you all.

    This is another sin of our nation.

    RIP to leopard!!

    • XP, I totally agree with you. its a shame we Nepalis, that these people are behaving even pathetic than the animals. Yes these people have the degrees of what not college and university and look at their civic sense. Hurling a poor leopard like a trophy or something like that. Had I the power I would have kicked each one of these people seen in the photo. F’kin piece of shits………….I live in the USA and am so utterly surprised to see how well animals are treated here and on the other side, I look back at my country Nepal and am so ASHAMED of seeing these people who have nothing more important to do than kill an innocent defensive animal. SHAME ON YOU KATHMANDU PEOPLE, MY KARMA BITE U IN YOUR ASS>………

  5. Totally Insane, Cruel….and they are proud of it?! :/
    It shows the weakness of the responsible authority..Shame on you, shame on me..Shame on us.

  6. This happened more for the amusement of the people there than their “safety.” Had they chosen to let it run, the scared leopard would gladly have done so. The truth is that people have noting to do there and when such an ” entertaining” moment presents itself, they have to make the most of it.
    But its not a tragic life lost. i think of it as a life sacrificed as the death of the leopard allowed these Nepalese to parade like Heros returning from battle in the streets with camera clicking away in front. For once in their life, they get a break from living the ordinary to being something useful.
    How pathetic, though, the truth is. Shoot a leopard twice, make sure it’s dead, start kicking and bashing the leopard for masculine orgasm… I’m done typing. It’s too pathetic. Thooka!

    And for people who believe that leopard “needed to die.” Go swallow a knife and die a very painful death.

  7. Have respect for all forms of life. You are not a hero if you parade around a dead leopard like that. If this is the people’s way of entertaining themselves, then we are not educating the country correctly. Maybe we should start with books, music, movies, etc on respecting everything and everyone.

  8. ITS THE RULE OF NATURE KILL OE GET KILLED…
    KILLING THE WAS THE RIGHT OPTION OTHERWISE IT WOULD HAVE BROUGHT HARM TO MANKIND IN THAT SITUATION.
    BUT PARADE……ARROGANT PEOPLE…

  9. it is very sad to hear this news. in the worst case sometimes wild animals has to be killed if there are no other way out but parading it around the street??it is such an disrespect towards nature and what does those people think?? they are brave to carry dead leopard on their arms and walk around idiots!!

  10. I was not present at the site of leopard attack but i met a person who was attacked by the same Leopard. According to him, there was no time to Tranquilize it. It was just going wild. The person told that “one man actually jumped on the back of the leopard” then only peoples where able to hit it with bamboos and stone. Later it was shot by police.
    As the person told me there was no time, it was going wild , it had to be killed.

    It’s cruel but nobody likes to die.

  11. These people are behaving even pathetic than the animals. Yes these people have the degrees of what not college and university and look at their civic sense. Hurling a poor leopard like a trophy or something like that. Had I the power I would have kicked each one of these people seen in the photo. F’kin piece of shits………….I live in the USA and am so utterly surprised to see how well animals are treated here and on the other side, I look back at my country Nepal and am so ASHAMED of seeing these people who have nothing more important to do than kill an innocent defensive animal. SHAME ON YOU ALL , MY KARMA BITE U IN YOUR ASS AND KICK YOU >………

  12. And why was the poor animal DRAGGED all the way by its TAIL??? It is very INHUMANE of these people, totally USELESS guys out there. I am sure they must have had a hell’uva lot amusement and must have felt really proud of what they have done to this innocent animal. I am sure they will tell their kids and grandson of how heroic their dad or grandad were…….
