young leopard dies at army HQ in India


JAMMU, India: Trapped in the barbed wire fencing at divisional army headquarters in Rajouri district, a young leopard died on Thursday after struggling for life for over 12 hours, official sources said.


It got trapped into three-tier barbed wire fencing when it jumped into the army headquarters on Wednesday evening and succumbed on Thursday almost after 12 hours, they said.


Though army guards alerted officers and a message was flashed to the wildlife department, no timely action was taken, they said, adding it died of excessive bleeding after continued roaring for long.


A defense spokesman said the leopard died before the rescue team arrived from Jammu
