Lucknow: A leopard, which created havoc in Meerut city last month and disappeared, had resurfaced in Parichit Garh`s Puthi viilge, a newspaper report said on Wednesday.
The report said that the leopard was seen by a farmer while he was working in his farm on Monday. After spotting the leopard, the farmer shouted in fear, following which the other villagers came to his rescue. The wild cat, however, managed to flee from the spot.
Getting the information about the wild cat`s presence in the area, the forest officials immediately reached the spot. After examining the foot marks in the farmland, the officials confirmed the leopard’s presence.
Last month a high alert was sounded in Meerut by the authorities after the leopard entered the Cantonment Hospital, triggering panic among several patients and the hospital staff present there, an IANS report said.
The big cat was first spotted February 23 at a shop. After residents attacked it, the leopard fled and slipped into the cantonment hospital where it attacked two people.
The leopard was locked up in the hospital situated in Sadar Bazar, but managed to escape. Forest officials are trying their best to nab the animal but have not succeeded till date.
