Gujarat Samachar
Briefly translated from Gujarati

Leopards have become concern not on for local villagers who are being attacked but also for Sakkar Bag zoo authorities as the zoo is "House Full".

There are about 359 lions but about 1100 Leopards in Saurashtra region. Due to Sugar cane farming, incidences of leopard attack have increaged, informs M M Sharma, CF-WL for Gir. This is big concern for the department he added. Rescue teams were kept at Sasan, Jasadhar and Mahuva, but due to increasing attack incidences, rescue team is also kept at Sakkar Bag zoo in Junagadh.

At present there are 46 leopards in the zoo and more cages are being nstalled to accommodate more leopards.
