One man has been injured after a leopard entered a private school in India’s southern Karnataka state on Thursday.

The man was attacked as he attempted to close a window in order to lock the wild animal inside a room.

A heavy police presence surrounded the school while staff announced a day’s holiday to ensure the safety of its pupils. Authorities eventually called in a team of vets to control the leopard with tranquilisers.

It is still unclear how the wild animal entered the school.
