NEWSLINK: Leopard scare in Maharashtra village after people find half-eaten calf

Panic spread across Vedi village of Palghar district after a villager discovered a half-eaten carcass of a calf preyed upon by a leopard. However, the forest department officials have asked the villagers to stay clam and alert. They said the big cat might have strayed into the village looking for water and food, as the number wild boars, its natural prey, is dwindling in the wild.

“The calf belonged to Jitendra Mhatre, a resident of Vedi village, and its half-eaten body was found a few metres away from his field,” said Dinesh Desale, range forest officer, Saphale.
