Leopard beaten to death


According to sources, villagers spotted the wild animal   and informed the police. As the Forest Department staff arrived at the spot and attempted to catch the big cat, it pounced on Nissar, an employee. Forest watcher Madegowda who came to rescue was also not spared. Villagers killed the leopard later by hitting it with clubs. Both the injured have been treated at Yalandur Hospital and are stated to be out of danger. The villagers have claimed that they killed leopard for self defence.

The leopard had strayed into the village on Thursday night and preyed on a dog. It might have stayed back in search of a prey. The postmortem was performed at the village.
