AP – In this photo taken Tuesday, July 19, 2011, a leopard attacks a forest guard at Prakash Nagar village near Salugara, on the outskirts of Siliguri, India. The leopard strayed into the village area and mauled several villagers, including three guards, before being caught by forest officials, according to news reports. The leopard, which suffered injuries caused by knives and batons, died later in the evening at a veterinary center. The forest guard being attacked was injured.
“The forest guard being attacked was injured” Ya think? Holy Crap! This is the freaking photo of the year. Amazing. Gimme a sec to try to break this thing down. These guys are hunting for a leopard that already mauled a bunch of villagers and forest officials. So, they bring in the guys with guns and helmets. The leopard sees the four of them, finds the only one without a helmet, wearing sandals I might add, and BLAM… pounces! Time to take a bite out of this joker’s helmetless head. How ’bout the dudes just standing there with their guns? Hamburger head, if he survived, is gonna be thrilled with this photo. Really, guys? You couldn’t even lift up your guns and pretend to save me? Ok, final thought on this picture. I’m 99% sure that leopard is wearing one of the Power Balance Bracelets on it’s left wrist. Incredible balance.
