School-wrecking beast on the loose again

    Recently a wild-eyed beast got into a school and ran amok, savaging staff and creating mayhem all round before being forced out of the premises. It subsequently escaped and is believed to be intent on creating similar chaos in the first available school it can find.

    But enough of my old Headteacher, that rampaging leopard in India has escaped from its cage and is on the loose again:

    That's a convenient gash to have in the back of your trousers when tackling dangerous creatures, isn't it?

    All credit to the guy for trying to deal with the animal. Why isn't the photographer trying to help rather than take a pic?

    I can't access that link due to Broadband problems (being connected to fibre optics tomorrow - hurray) but the original video of the leopard in the school seemed to involve a lot of running around shouting. Guaranteed to enrage the beast I should think.

    Indeed

    Possibly he/she has more sense?
    They are quite formidable creatures

    The coverage of this story raised a query for me. If a zoo or circus animal had escaped in this country and was filmed running around a school mauling and biting staff members who were screaming in terror, would BBC News have broadcast it? If not, why did they think it was OK to show it happening in India?

    Maybe one or two underlying assumptions about how we represent foreign countries?

    Damn the BBC for their total lack of political correctness. How dare they.
