Times of India
Forest officials have revealed that it was not a leopard but a hyena which killed 36 sheep recently in a cattle yard in Nana Ankadiya village near Amreli. Interestingly, the investigations also indicated that many of these sheep died out of fear. "Earlier, we found pug marks of a leopard near the yard and suspected it to be behind the death of 36 sheep found lying in a pool of blood in the cattle yard of Bhola Gamara on Sunday night. However, during our probe on Tuesday, we found pug marks of a hyena and marks of a sheep being dragged to a nearby bush," said a forest official. "However, the hyena injured only 10 sheep, the rest of them died out of scare," the official said.
