Carcasses of two leopards were found from two separate spots in Visavadar taluka of Junagadh district under mysterious circumstances. While the forest department is awaiting postmortem reports to pinpoint the cause of death, the department has confirmed that there were no external injury marks on them.

Sources said, a male leopard, about two years old, was found dead in a grazing land on the border of Bhalgam and Jhanjesar village in the taluka on Thursday. A day later, carcass of another young male leopard was found 2.5 km away in Jambuda village. Range forest officer LM Kandoriya said, "The circumstances of the deaths of both animals are mysterious. There are no injury marks on any of the bodies. We called veterinary doctors and forensic experts and have sent the viscera for forensic examination. Only after the reports come in, we will be able to give an exact cause of death. Whatever it is, it appears to be internal."
