Leopards: 21st Century Cats (BBC)

Is it possible for leopards and people to live alongside one another?

Set in India, this BBC Natural World Special explores the relationship between these powerful predators and humans. Built for strength rather than speed, leopards hunt in the shadows and ambush their prey. However, in a shrinking world, leopards' lives are increasingly colliding with humans: attacks are regularly reported and many of the cats are trapped, stoned or shot. What is it like to live with leopards in your back yard and what does the future hold for these majestic cats?
