(NBC) - A leopard was spotted Sunday morning strolling on the grounds of a school in southern India.

Capturing it took time and effort, which injured a few people.

Footage shot at the school shows the big cat attacking a man near a swimming pool.

Local media reported that forest officials and local police launched an operation to catch the leopard, and at least four people were hurt in the process.

The leopard was tranquilized and brought under control in the evening.

The last time a leopard was seen in the area was in 2012.
