Leopard presence in Arcadia scaring villagers

January 6, 2011

Dehradun, (Dainik Jargran) on January 6th, 2011

A Leopard in the Arcadia range adjoining the Dehradun city area is giving sleepless nights to the residents of the area. Residents are angry over this issue as no concrete step has been taken to address this issue. All that the forest officials do is burst 4-5 firecrackers and get done with their job. The villagers demand urgent action.

Note that the Leopard is active in the area since December, 2009. On Tuesday (Jan 4) the leopard went away with another kill by fleeing off with a calf belonging to one poor villager. This has further scared the denizens of the area. People fears to come out of their houses after dusk. The villagers fear for their small children who often have to come and go to school all alone.

Villager’s demands strict action by the forest department against the Leopard fear in the region.
