Leopard trapped in Gujarat village.


Vadodara, Apr 1 (PTI) A leopardess tried in vain to free a leopard trapped in a cage put up by the Gujarat Forest Department at a village in Junagadh district.

The forest personnel had put up the cage with a prey inside it in a field in Andri village yesterday after there were reports that a leopard has been seen in the area, department officials said.

As the animal got trapped in the cage, the forest staff saw a leopardess slowly walking towards it and trying to break the iron grille of the cage.

The forest staff drove a tractor to scare the leopardess away, they said, adding this was the 12th leopard captured from villages under Veraval taluka of the district in the last two months.
