A full-grown male leopard which was creating a fear psychosis among the villagers in the Selengi village under the Golaghat Tehsil was caged by the district forest officials on August 29th, 2019.
As per information, the big cat had been creating panic in the village since the past 2 years and had also killed their livestock. The locals informed that they had intimated about the movement of the leopard to the forest officials on several occasions but he somehow escaped.
The concerned officials accordingly planned a trap and managed to cage the leopard today morning.
‘The leopard had been creating panic among the villagers since two years now and had killed a series of domestic animals. A relief for the villagers after he has been caged’ said a local.
