Park Rangers Used as Live Bait to Nab Man-Eating Leopard
Park rangers are being used as bait in a bid to catch a man-eating leopard that has killed three people in the space of a week in India’s western state of Gujarat. Three workers equipped with tranquilizer guns are spending their nights locked in a cage to try to catch the animal, which is believed to have killed three people, including two children, and injured five others. “The killing was most brutal. Besides placing the cage, we are now planning ways to nab the leopard,” said J.L. Zala, deputy conservator of forests for the region.
