GURUGRAM: A one-and-a-half year old female leopard was found dead on Tuesday morning in Gairatpur Bas village near Raisina area.

Shockingly, a few injury marks were found in the neck area of the carcass. The carcass was found near a pond. “These injuries could be by another animal. However, we can’t say anything at the moment. The carcass has been sent for postmortem,” said a senior official from the district wildlife department.

 A five-member district wildlife team led by veterinary surgeon Dr Ashok Khasa and wildlife inspector Sunil Kumar rushed to the spot after they received a tip-off that the dead animal was lying in the hills. In November 2017, a big cat was found dead in the same area. The department, after conducting the post mortem, claimed that the big cat died after falling into a 100-foot-deep old mining pit.
