Irate villagers of Ambalakulam in Kilinochchi killed the prowling leopard that mauled 10 people including one wildlife officer recently. According to wildlife officers, the leopard that frequented the area to snatch cattle and goats had pounced on villagers.

When villagers and a team of wildlife officers led by B. Giridaran had started a search operation to capture the animal, the leopard hiding in a farmland had attacked five villagers and a wildlife officer. However, the five-feet long animal had been killed by the villagers.

The injured were admitted to the Kilinochchi Hospital. Their condition was not serious according to hospital sources. (Text and Pix Sithum Chathuranga)

    People had no option to protect themselves. But this could have been stopped if the responsible officers have done their duty properly. Kindness and compassion towards all living things is a mark of a civilized society. Its like being too selfish.The number of people who are sensitive to others pain and suffering is too less in present. Where are we heading ?????

    Please take a tranquilizer gun and shoot the villagers, as it was not used for the proper reason.

    Speaks so much about the type of two legged animals living in the area. These animals survive a war but can't get away from those useless two legged animals.

    Unscrupulous garbage born from the war.
