  1. Brutal, but a showcase of the circle of life. Well captured, Mohammed. Posted 5 years ago
  2. Yes Brutal, but the leopard kills quickly and the victim does not have a lingered death. Posted 5 years ago

The Indian leopard is a leopard subspecies widely distributed on the Indian subcontinent and classified as ''Near Threatened'' by IUCN since 2008. The species ''Panthera pardus'' may soon qualify for the ''Vulnerable'' status due to habitat loss and fragmentation, heavy poaching for the illegal trade of skins and body parts in Asia, and persecution due to conflict situations. They are becoming increasingly rare outside protected areas. The trend of the population is decreasing.
