Leopard falls in Forest Officials’ trap


Jalpaiguri: A full grown leopard fell into the trap laid by the forest officials in the adjoining area of Malbazar’s Lisliver Tea garden in Dooars. The tiger was caught from an Army outpost.

According to locals, the leopard was seen for quite a few days in the area. When the forest department was informed, they positioned a cage in the army outpost to trap the animal.

On Thursday morning, Army Jawans saw the leopard trapped in the cage and informed the forest officials.
