Russian girl mauled by leopard

PATTAYA (AFP): A 19-year-old Russian girl mauled by a leopard in a theme park here has demanded US$15,000 to pay her medical bills, police said today. Irena Biliard filed a complaint with police after she suffered seven deep cuts on her left hand and arm when the leopard attacked her, a police spokesman said. He said she had apparently been posing for a picture with the animal, which was being held on a chain, when it pounced. The officer added that park owners were negotiating compensation based on an insurance policy.
