Hyderabad: A leopard allegedly attacked a herd of goats, killing one near the Kothapalli forest area in Yacharam late night on Monday. This is the third such incident during one week’s span.
According to Telangana Today, the incident came to light on Tuesday morning when the locals found the carcass of the goat a little away from the animal shed that was put up adjacent to the forest boundary.
Forest officials suspect that the leopard which had killed a goat and attacked two other goats last week could have returned on Monday night to another shed in the same area in search of food.
Forest Range Officer Narasimha said that they have set up a trap, tying a goat as bait, to catch the wild cat.
