Nowadays, it's not that unusual finding wild animals such as tigers or leopards straying away into inhabited areas. Earlier a snake was seen trying to bite a motorcyclist in Thailand. This time in another such incident, in India, a forest ranger was forced to jump off a roof to avoid being attacked by a leopard.

According to Indian Express, a leopard wandered into the Kuruli village in the Kantabanji forest area of Odisha. After entering the village, the leopard took shelter in a cow-shed. At one point, it ended up inside of a small house. The Forest Department rangers tried to trap the big cat when it suddenly emerged onto the roof. 

The leopard then charged towards a policeman who was on the roof trying to trap the animal. Seeing this, the policeman quickly jumped off the roof, saving himself from the attack.

After a toiling 12 hours of operation, the leopard was finally captured, but the animal managed to injure three persons, including the officer and a teenager. Fortunately, no injuries were life-threatening and the leopard will be shifted to Nandankanan zoo in Bhubaneswar.
