Dead leopard found in jungle warfare campusMarch 7th, 2012 - 8:38 pm ICT by IANS
Raipur, March 7 (IANS) A leopard was found dead Wednesday in a hilly part of the campus of Chhattisgarh’s Counter Terrorism and Jungle Warfare College (CTJWC), a forest department official said.
The male leopard was spotted by a few trainee soldiers when they were strolling in a fenced portion of the college, located in Kanker district, some 150 km south from here.
“The carcass with its teeth and jaws missing was sent for autopsy,” a forest official told IANS.
He said it seemed to be a case of poaching.
“But it can be a natural death as the leopard was aged around 20 years. We will wait for the autopsy before launching a probe.”
Kanker is largely covered by thick forests where forest officials regularly seize organs and skins of endangered animals. Many people linked to poaching gangs have been arrested in the area.
