Leopard attacks woman in her home

Leopard attacks woman in her home
Divya Bhaskar
Briefly translated from Gujarati

Krashna village is very near to Gir forest east in Dhari Sub-district. Quite often wild animals come to this village in search for food.

At about 5AM, a leopard jumped over the boundry wall of Mukta Jina Koli's house. It attacked two calves. When the owner Mukta woke up due to noise of her pet animals, suddenly leopard pounced on her fore-head. On hearing the noise, neighbors gathered and leopard ran away.

The lady was taken to Dhari hospital and then further referred to Amreli hospital. Local village complain that inspite of such animal attacks being frequent, Dhari Govt. Hospital does not keep the required medicine and rabis injections in stock. This adds more life risk for the victims as they to be taken to Amreli which is about 30 kms far from Dhari.
