LONGER VERSION: Woman armed with only her walking stick manages to fight off wild leopard

A woman armed with only a walking stick managed to fight off a wild leopard that attacked her in Mumbai on Wednesday (September 29). Remarkable security camera footage shows 55-year-old Nirmaladevi Singh wandering onto a terrace outside her home completely unaware that the big cat is metres away waiting to pounce. Singh sits down on a low wall, still oblivious to the feline intruder, and the leopard attacks. Despite being knocked onto her back, she manages to hit the leopard with her stick several times until it retreats. Singh suffered scratches and was admitted to a local hospital for treatment.
