You spelt it absolutely perfectly , Master Smith . And I am 100 % inclined to agree with you . This particular forest panther was neither the largest nor the heaviest man eater which I have ever had the good fortune to dispatch . How ever , it was certainly the most intelligent .Splendid storytelling Major. Why this beast shared the cunning of the rudraprayag (I spelled it the best I could) leopard. I wonder if the Panther smelled his own scent on the corpse?
