Leopard mauls boy in India


Jammu, Nov 27: A leopard strayed into two villages of Nowshera area of district Rajouri, mauled a boy, and killed a horse and three sheep.

Leopards have attacked people and cattle at least a dozen times in the past two months.

Reports from the area revealed that a leopard strayed over a cattle shed in village Gangroata of Nowshera tehsil, late last night. The wild beast killed one horse and three sheep before fleeing from the village.

The cattle shed owner reportedly raised alarm following which people from the neighborhood came to the spot and forced the leopard to flee, a local villager said.
However, the same leopard is said to have struck another village, Chingus Rashawa, and mauled a boy named Rafeeq.
