Traps to take control of leopards

Tanahun, May 6: Kennel has become effective to catch leopards in Tanahun. The Division Forest Office, Tanahun has constructed kennels to take control of them. 

The iron kennels have been kept in different places to entrap the wild beast. According to the Chief of Division Forest Office, Tanahun Komal Raj Kafle, the traps have been placed in different 18 places. The new measure was taken to send leopards to wildlife conservation area by entrapping them.

He said that leopard repeats its activities in the areas where it attacked once. So the traps have been placed in the same areas. After the construction of ponds in different areas, the incidents of human-wildlife encounter have declined lately. Pond construction was given priority as most of the wildlife attacks had occurred when the animals entered the human settlement for quenching their thirst. 

14 children were killed and 17 injured in leopard attacks in the district alone during 6 years. The attack of leopard was frequent in different places of the district like Bhanu, Bandipur, Anbukhaireni and Byas.
