Sloth bear kills 2 in MP, beaten to death - Indian Express:

"A sloth bear that killed two villagers and left a policeman fighting for his life was beaten to death by villagers in Venkatnagar village in Anuppur district on Saturday.

So violent was the animal’s attack that Madanlal Yadav died on the spot in a field while Ravi Yadav who tried to rescue him died on way to hospital.

When constable Sudhir Singh went to the spot, barely a few hundred metres from the Chhattisgarh border, the animal attacked him as well before villagers rescued him.

Relatives and villagers then killed the animal out of fear and anger and unsuccessfully tried to set it afire."
