Against a backdrop of escalating and often deadly human-leopard conflict across India,conservationist Rom Whitaker sets out to uncover the fascinating truth behind the gory headlines. How is it that such a large predator is still relatively common in a country of 1.2 billion people? What is it really like living with these big cats on your doorstep? And why is it that some leopards prefer to avoid us, while others become man-eaters?
