NEWSLINK: Threat to leopard population as Ninth big cat found dead near villages in Gurugram range

Alert lapord.jpgMystery surrounds the death of a four year old male leopard, whose corpse was found with injuries to his mouth and head in Gurugram.

Wildlife department officials have not ruled out foul play following the discovery of the big cat's body in an area between Bhango and Kharak village, near Raishina forest on Friday.

Shyam Sunder Kaushik, DFO wildlife Gurugram range, said: 'We have recovered the dead body of an adult leopard, which has been sent for a post-mortem. It will be clear only after the post-mortem whether the injuries were accidental or unnatural.'

Despite efforts by the wildlife department, leopards frequently prowl around the human population.
