Leopard trapped in Geleky

Forest officials in Sivasagar district captured a leopard which has been creating a reign of terror at a tea garden area in Geleky.

Acting on the complaints of the local residents in the Modi Tea Estate area, the forest officials with the help of a group of people laid a trap where the animal landed on Friday night.

Then it was sent to a safe place to be rehabilitated much to a major respite for hundreds of people in the entire area who has already lost their domestic animals like cows, goats and pigs.
