DIBRUGARH:

A full-grown male leopard was caged at Brahmaputra Cracker and Polymer Limited (BCPL) production unit at Lepetkata in upper Assam Dibrugarh on Wednesday.

“During patrolling, the CISF personnel sighted a leopard in BCPL, and after that, we have put up three cages, and today a full-grown leopard was caged,” said Pallab Saikia, forester, Dibrugarh Range office.

Saikia said, “We will release the leopard at Dehing-Patkai forest. Leopards are frequently spotted near BCPL, and people from that area complained to us about the sighting of a leopard.”

The man-animal conflict has been rising because of the shrinking of forests, and as a result, the animals come to human habitation in search of food.

The leopard (Panthera pardus) is one of the five extant species in the genus Panthers, a member of the Felidae.
