Mangaluru: Leopard rolls over hillock to death near Kinnigoli

Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (SS)

Mangaluru, Jun 7: A leopard was found dead on Tuesday, June 6, after it rolled over a hillock near Ulepaadi Mithabettu. This incident happened near Mulki's Kinnigoli under the Aikal grama panchayat limits.

It is suspected that Mithabettu locals had laid a trap for the dreaded animal unable to bear its havoc that it wreaked in the villages. The leopard had strayed into the area looking for its prey in the night and rolled over the hillock to its death, it is suspected.

Locals heard the dogs barking loudly and when they approached the area from where they heard the sound they found that the leopard was moving around which died a few moments later.

Forest officials examined the leopard and took the body for a post-mortem examination.

The leopard had increasingly wreaked havoc on villagers in Kinnigoli and the surrounding areas and it had also killed and eaten a few pet dogs and hens.

    Why do animals stray on to the city? answer is there is no food available in forest and they sway away. The Forest officials must protect animals and provide them adequate amount of food so that they don't starry away animals have rights too!

    Dr.Kusuma ,Nellore ,Whats the use of feeding the leopard in forest? They are wild animals seek their food self. I am sure someone kept the trap so that it rolldown to fall.Never heard of Leopard roll over down to death.Previously people were keeping the trap for Tigers :They used to eat something poisonous and die.same will happen to these leopards also.There is nothing to hunt for them in forest.People have cut the forest and living animals too.Leopards in our forest is not needed I feel.

    ಕಣ್ಣಾರೆ ನೋಡುವ ಅವಕಾಶ ಸಿಕ್ಕಿತ್ತು....ತುಂಬಾ ಸುಂದರ. ಆದರೂ ತುಂಬಾ ಬೇಸರದ ಸಂಗತಿ. ಇದರಲ್ಲಿ ತಪ್ಪು ಯಾರದೂ ಇಲ್ಲ. ಅಷ್ಟೇ ಆಯುಷ್ಯ ಇತ್ತು ಪಾಪ....😢😢😢
