Rajkot: A lioness and leopard were found dead in Gir forests while three leopards were trapped in Amodra village by foresters following the recent killing of a 12 year old boy in the village.

The carcass of the leopard was found in a farm Tulsishyam range in Gir (East) forest late on Wednesday. Post-mortem was done on Thursday and officials say the cause of death was intestinal infection and that all 18 claws of the animal, aged about five, were intact.
