DOOMDOOMA: A fully grown leopard was captured by the Forest department on Thursday night in a cage set up at Section 20, Mesaijan division of Samdang TE under Doomdooma Police Station in Tinsukia district.
Due to free movement of the leopards in the garden, the tea workers panicked and informed the forest department to take steps to cage the animal. According to the locals, many such leopards were seen moving freely around the tea garden area. They usually hunt the livestock from cowsheds and other sheds meant for keeping the animals at night. The tea-workers also urged the forest department to cage the remaining leopards moving around inside tea gardens.
