Dehradun: It was a bright morning with enthusiastic tourists captivating the enthralling beauty of Pithoragarh through their lenses. All hell broke loose when a wild Cheetah suddenly invaded into the Thal-Pankhu road stretch.
The traffic came to a standstill to watch the fuming Leopard. Witness suggest that the animal was injured and might have fled from the jungle in a fight for prey. It sat for half an hour before rushing back to the jungle. By then, tourists had clicked enough memories.
Forest Officials reported that the Cheetah couldn’t have ran miles into the forest owing to its injury. They do not have sedative bullets as of now but the Cheetah will be hunted down soon. Locals have been alerted.
