A leopard that killed an eight-year-old boy in Anida village of Khambha taluka in Amreli district was caged on Thursday night by forest department officials.
According to deputy conservator of forests (Gir East), Maniswar Raja, soon after the boy, Mayur Solanki, was killed by the leopard, forest officials placed cages in the area. "We have sent it to Sakkarbaug Zoo in Junagadh," Raja said. According to forest officials, on Wednesday night, Mayur was asleep outside his hut in the village along with his family members. When family members woke up in the morning, they did not find Mayur in his bed. Later on, his mauled body was found nearby.
Two children of the same village were killed by a leopard in the last two months and in the last three months, six people have been killed by leopards in Saurashtra region.
