Hyderabad: Leopard attacks were noted in two different areas 25 km apart in Yacharam mandal, Ranga Reddy district,  on Thursday, confirming that there are two leopards on the prowl in the region.

The first attack took place in Nandi Wanaparthy, Yacharam mandal, where the leopard attacked and killed a cow. The second attack took place in Salarpur, Thalakondapally mandal, near Ravinuthala reserve forest.

 

Amangal forest divisional officer M. Janakiram said, “The two attacks took place around 25 km apart from each other. We can hence confirm the presence of two leopards in the four forest reserves. It is impossible for one leopard to travel 25 km of rough terrain in less than a day."

Forest officials said that villagers were using crackers and drums to scare away the leopards owing to which, they suspect the big cats might have migrated to the northern part of the reserve forest near Ibrahimpatnam village.

The presence of the leopards has been seen for over six months now in the four reserve forest blocks, Kadthal, Yacharam, Mudwin  and Mudhivennu, spread over total 6,000 hectares, and located 50 km from the city in Ranga Reddy district.

One of the two leopards in its previous attack had killed three calves in a first-of-its-kind ambush. Forest officials have been trying to nab the leopards for six months now. Despite their change in strategy (the new strategy involving transparent fiberglass cages), however, the leopards are still at large.
