It’s Independence Day in Colombia and a young boy in uniform marches with military police as part of the celebrations in Bogota; performers of the Shenyang Acrobatic Troupe rehearse for a show opening in Sao Paulo, Brazil; and in Seville, Spain, a city bridge is used as the runway for a fashion show, part of the city’s Moda de Sevilla festivities.

In Prakash Nagar, India, a leopard goes on the attack, mauling several villagers before being nabbed and brought under control by forest officials. It’s unclear if the jungle cat became belligerent by today’s release of Lion, the latest version of the Apple OS X operating system — we just don’t know.

In Europe, competitors in the 17th stage of the Tour de France cycle across the Serre Poncon lake at Savines le Lac; a pile of elephant tusks is set ablaze at the Tsavo West National Park in Kenya as part of the first African Elephant Law Enforcement Day celebrations; and abandoned trains rust in a railway graveyard at the Uyuni salt flats in Bolivia.

This is just scratching the surface; we have many more images from around the world for you to enjoy.

No need to be subdued.
