Adding to the rising number of leopard attacks being reported from the state, a leopard injured three persons in a village in Talala taluka of Junagadh district on Tuesday morning. Sources said, the big cat first entered a house in Ankelwadi village after jumping a 15-ft-high wall and killed a calf in the cowshed. The inmates managed to scare away the animal by raising an alarm, but then the leopard also entered Lorvav Gir village and hid in a sugarcane field. Later, it pounced on three labourers working in the field and injured them. The workers have been shifted to Junagadh Civil Hospital. According to information received from Lorvav Gir village, three workers, Arvind Makwana, 25, Ramesh Vaghela, 18, and Rani Solanki, 40, were working in the field belonging to Damji Daya Ruparelia. Other workers came to their rescue but by that time the leopard had injured them badly. They were at first admitted to Talala hospital and later referred to Junagadh. Earlier in the month, two women were killed by a leopard in Veraval, one person was injured each in Porbandar district and Vapi, and 12 people were injured in an Anand village.
