A female leopard eluding the forest department for the past one week was finally caged on the bank of Hiran river near Mithapur on Sunday. Forest officials claimed that the big cat had been dodging all attempts of caging. "The leopard killed all goats we had kept inside the cage as live baits and dragged them without getting trapped. However, when we kept a dog in the cage, which happens to be the most favourite delicacy for leopards, the leopard was caught," said range forest officer KR Vaghasia. The captured leopard was five years old, seven feet long, 2.50 feet tall and weighing 70 kg.
