Man Eaters: A Human-Leopard Story
1 x 45'
The first documentary about the Human-leopard conflict in Sri Lanka, “Man Eaters: A Human Leopard Story” approaches the conflict by analyzing past and present cases of man-eating leopards in Sri Lanka and what led to their strange behavior. Unlike India, man-eating leopards in Sri Lanka are very rare. But by tracing some prominent cases of man-eaters – such as the notorious ‘Man-eater of Punanai’ that killed over 20 people back in the 1920s – this documentary presents a compelling narrative about a conflict that will only escalate in future…unless measures are taken to prevent it.
