Leopard trapped in Udupi district by forest officials
Kundapur range Forest officer Sharath Shetty said the leopard was male and three years old.
The animal was caught at Malady village near Kundapur yesterday, official sources said. After the big cat, which strayed into the village, had eaten some dogs in recent days, the forest department set up a cage in Malady to trap the leopard a week ago.
After conducting a check-up and finding that the animal was healthy, it was released in the Mookambika wildlife sanctuary, he said.
