The leopard eventually died of wounds sustain from villagers that fought the beast back with knives, stones and batons.

It injured six villagers, a policeman and four forest guards before being hit with a tranquilizer gun Tuesday. The cat died within hours, and a post mortem is being conducted. It happened near Siliguri, about 373 miles (600 kilometers) from Kolkata. The people are recovering from their injuries, mostly swipes from the cat's claws. Leopards are protected in India though more are straying into villages for food.
