Because of this the leopard had entered the house
It is estimated that the life of the leopard is about three years. He was carefully put in a trap cage and later released in the forest division of Najibabad. SDO Harendra Singh said that at times due to lack of adequate food and habitat, wild animals like leopards are forced to move to human settlements in search of food and shelter. This situation often leads to human-leopard conflict, with violent and brutal consequences for both humans and wildlife.
Conservator of Forests (Bijnor) Anil Patel said, the leopard must have taken shelter inside the house in the morning and was first seen inside a room. On hearing about the incident, our team reached the spot and immediately escorted everyone out of the house before encircling the area with safety nets. The team led by Wildlife SDO Harendra Singh assisted us in the safe rescue and release of the leopard.
