Five Leopard hostages farmer family
Briefly translated from Gujarati
It appears Gir and Girnar forests are over-crowded with wild animals including lions & Leopards.
A very rare incidence happened at Shapur village at about 10 kms from Junagadh, adjoining Girnar forest. A family of five member of farmer Yusufbhai Alarkha Dhumaliya lived in a hut type house built in middle of their farm. A buffaloe was tied just outside their hut yesterday night at about 8 : 30 PM they heard the leopards growling. When he highted his torch he found five leopards surrounding his hut. They were in prowl to hunt. Scare farmer starting burning fire-wood and then his blanket etc. to keep the animal away. He phoned his neighbor Jentibhai who then came with mob of 50-100 villagers in tractors & rickshaws. Finally Mob scared away the cats. Two hours drama ended.
