NEWSLINK: Settlements push into forests: 11 straying leopards killed in 5 yrs

As many as 11 common leopards have died in human-wildlife conflict in Kathmandu Valley in the past five years.

The number of leopard deaths was compiled from cases reported by the District Forest Offices of Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Lalitpur since 2013.

An ongoing study, conducted by the Friends of Nature (FON) on human-leopard conflict in the Valley, shows that these leopards were killed as they entered human settlements from nearby forests.
