A female leopard that had killed a three-year-old child on the outskirts of Devadi-Semrav village in Talala taluka some days ago was captured by the forest department officials on Monday.

The foresters said that the leopard was on the prowl in the area and they had placed several cages with baits in the area. However, the big cat remained evasive for several days.

"On the fateful night of Sunday, we placed a cage with live bait in it at an orchard owned by Kala Parmar, who claimed to have sighted the beast in his orchard. The leopard was found captured on Monday morning," said a forester.
