MYSORE: A two-year-old female leopard, which used to stray into farms near Jayapura village about 13 km from here, was trapped in a fence and died of suffocation. The leopard, it is said, fell into a trap set up by the locals to ensnare stray pigs. The locals found the leopard struggling to extricate itself from the trap on Friday and alerted the Forest Department.

The trap set up along the fence of a farm, situated off the main road to Heggadadevankote, was intended to ensnare stray pigs. Though the leopard tried to extricate itself from the trap, it could not and died of suffocation. By the time, a full team of forest officials arrived at the spot armed with tranquilliser darts, the leopard died.
