Leopards trapped at BEML and in Srirangapatna

January 4, 2023

Mysuru: Two leopards were trapped using cages this morning near city. One was trapped inside the BEML Campus at Yelwal, the other one fell into a cage at Subbanakuppe village near Srirangapatna. After a series of complaints from the BEML staff on leopard sightings, the Forest Department placed a cage with a live bait.

The male leopard trapped inside BEML and the one trapped at Srirangapatna are aged about four years. The second leopard had terrorised the villagers of Subbanakuppe and had taken refuge in the fields. Finally, it was trapped inside the field of one Balu.

The trapped leopards will either be released back into the wild inside Bandipur Tiger Reserve or inside Nagarahole National Park, as directed by the Senior Forest Department Officers.

    More and more incidences of Leopards visiting places in Mysore!
    Nest, during the next Dasara, the wild Leopards should visit the Mysore Palace, to see the private durbar of this pretend Wadiyar, Yaduveer, who dressed up and climbs the throne, in a room witnessed currently by a dozen of his staff. The wild Leopards joining them would be a good sight!!

    This is sad. This is the show of Man and Nature conflict.
    The Leopards are venturing into cities cuz, their habitat is dwindling….Man is destroying nature…
    Govt must make laws to protect , conserve…

    What a name!!
    Why do you look for your government always?
    You Indians are breeding like rats, adding millions of new Indians every month, and there is no end to this people production!
    That is what India is good at! See, India has overtaken China in population, the only area it has done.
    Stop breeding, the solution is there!!
