 A four-year-old male leopard died in road accident on Una-Kodinar coastal highway late on Saturday.

Sources said that the leopard was hit by a speeding vehicle when it was crossing the road. Jamwala forest range officials rushed to the spot after the incident.

Sources said that there are good number of leopards in this area and they often come out on the road. However, this was the first incident in which a leopard has died in a road accident.

Earlier, two lions were killed in separate incidents when they were hit by vehicles on Bhavnagar-Somnath coastal highway last month.
