Leopard kills One at Bhavnath

Leopard kills One at Bhavnath
Divya Bhaskar
Briefly translated from Gujarati

A dead body of religious tourist was found near Kashmiri Bapu's place in the Girnar forest. The old saint(Sadhu) was passing by Sonal river alone when the leopard attacked him. Major part of his body was eat away by the leopard. Forest official Khimani informed police and the body was sent for post mortem. Leopard had severly mauled the man on chest, stomach and thighs.

Just before three-four days an old man was attacked by the leopard in Seshavan area. Forest department has put three cages to catch the leopard.

Kishore Kotecha's Comment:-
Maha Shivratri fair near Girnar WLS and Bhavnath valley is over yesterday. Girnar WLS is well populated with wild animals like him and the save time three quarter million people flock in this area during festivals & fairs like Maha Shivratri and Parikrama. This irritates and disturbs wildlife and hence such human-attacks are bound to happened. Best solution is restrict no. of tourist and areas of forest allowed to them during.
