Leopard killed, Orissa to probe TV journalist's role

Officials of the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) have asked the Orissa Wildlife Department to inquire whether a local TV reporter incited villagers to chase and kill a male leopard that had accidentally strayed into a forest plantation near Bhubaneswar early in the morning on Thursday.

A one-and-a-half-year-old male leopard had strayed into a Forest Department plantation, located on a high sandbar on Kuakhia riverbed when it was spotted by people of Marichia village under Bhubaneswar panchayat samiti. Acting on the complaint of a member of National Board for Wildlife, Biswajit Mohanty, NTCA officials asked the state government to inquire into the incident.

Wildlife officials said the animal was trying to escape when the villagers stoned it to death. “The leopard was scared when some villagers spotted it. Though the local people informed the wildlife officials in Nandankanan zoological park, the animal was stoned to death by villagers just about the time when Nandankanan people reached the spot. The animal was hiding behind the tree plantation,” said Jayanta Kumar Das, Divisional Forest Officer (DFO) of Bhubaneswar city division.   courtesy : Indian Express
