Leopards terrorized in most parts of Assam and in a recent case, a leopard has been caged at Selengi village in Golaghat district.
The leopard terrorized in the area for many days and destroyed the paddy cultivation of the people. The forest department has successfully caged the leopard after repeated attempts on Monday. People also crowded in the area to witness the caged leopard.
On the other hand, a tiger attacked a man Jitu Gogoi (45) at Khumtai. The tiger attacked the man at the time when he was cleaning his garden. Following the incident, the locals also attacked the tiger after which it died.
Locals alleged that the tigers regularly terrorized in the area and attacked the domestic animals and requested the forest department to provide them cages as the tiger frequently roams openly in the area.
Later, the officials of the forest department reached the spot and take the tiger for post mortem.
