A startled leopard turned a residential compound to chaos in India for over two hours.

Video footage shows panicked residents arming themselves with sticks as the leopard runs amok on March 9 at the compound in Palher Nagar in west-central India.

According to SWNS, the leopard was finally sedated after four attempts to shoot it with tranquilizer guns, two-and-a-half hours after it was discovered by a construction worker.

It is thought that the leopard had snuck onto the residential site during the night and had hidden in a building that was under construction.

Some residents shut themselves into their homes when the leopard emerged, while others climbed trees or onto their roofs to catch a glimpse of the big cat.

The leopard was loaded into a cage and taken to a zoo.
