The man-eating leopard(s) of Rudraprayag
Its eyes half-closed, the leopard appeared asleep. The bullet still lodged in its shoulder. As Jim Corbett looked at the animal that had proved his toughest hunt, he thought this leopard was no fiend. It was on June 9, , almost exactly a hundred years ago from today, that the Rudraprayag leopard killed its first human victim. Man-eating leopards were rare then, unlike man-eating tigers.
Leopard of Rudraprayag
The Man-Eating Leopard of Rudraprayag
The Leopard of Rudraprayag was a male man-eating leopard , reputed to have killed over people. It was eventually killed by hunter and author Jim Corbett. The first victim of the leopard was from Benji Village , and was killed in For the next eight years, people were afraid to venture alone at night on the road between the Hindu shrines of Kedarnath and Badrinath , for it passed through the leopard's territory, and few villagers left their houses after dark. The leopard, preferring human flesh, would break down doors, leap through windows, claw through the mud or thatch walls of huts and drag the occupants out before devouring them. According to official records, the leopard killed over people. However, Corbett notes that the number of deaths was probably higher due to unreported kills and deaths due to injuries sustained in attacks.
