Leopard puts Indians in a spot of bother
(02-24 20:15)

A leopard sparked panic in a north Indian city when it roamed inside a hospital, a cinema and an apartment block, an official said.
Authorities closed schools and colleges in Meerut, 60 kilometers northeast of the Indian capital, after the leopard was discovered prowling the city streets Sunday, a senior city official said.
"Despite our best efforts, we have been unable to track the leopard down. We have launched a massive hunt for the beast,'' said additional district magistrate S.K. Dubey.
The cat was found inside an empty ward of an army hospital on Sunday before wildlife officers were called and managed to fire a tranquiliser dart, Dubey told AFP.
But the predator escaped.
