Unfortunately, such incidents of leopards entering populated areas often don't end as peacefully. Just last week, more than seven people were injured in the Indian city of Meerut after a leopard wandered into town looking for food. Leopard-human conflicts have become increasingly common as India's population continues to enter further into the big cats' native habitat.
"There are many cases where human habitats are encroaching on those of big cats, which are getting lesser and lesser over the years," Jimmy Borah, Tiger Coordinator for the World Wildlife Fund India, tells CNN.
"The cats are forced to come out of their habitats to look for food. There is lots of habitat loss and with that food source loss -- it's one of the main problems, which is why they are coming out."
