The leopard that went on a rampage at an Indian school last week and mauled three people escaped from its enclosure on Monday.

The nearly 100-pound, male leopard jumped over the fences at the Bangalore’s Bannerghatta Zoo, according to a witness account.

That’s from CNN. The leopard in question was recorded attacking—but, miraculously, not seriously injuring—several men at a Bangalore school in a video that flew around the Internet on Feb. 8:

The good news is that the Bannerghatta Zoo is apparently surrounded by a national park where the leopard can hang out without bothering/being bothered by people.
