With the Wildlife Department being unsuccessful to trap a leopard since November 11, chief wildlife warden Dherandra Singh came here on Thursday. He went to the Kadian forest area and the surrounding areas to get an update on the operation.
Despite the efforts of the department, leopard has so far not been trapped. A total of three cages have been put at different places. On Thursday, the team sought more cages from the chief wildlife warden, who asked district forest officer (DFO) Daljeet Singh Brar to co-ordinate with the other districts to get more cages.
The team had been complaining about shortage of cages for many days. But so far, they have not received even a single cage. More tranquiliser guns, night-vigil cameras were the other demands.
The chief wildlife warden along with the DFO and other officers went around in the forest area. "We saw neel gai, Shikra, a bird, peacock and black bucks in the forest area. The number of animals has increased in the forest belt which is a good sign. Our teams will continue the hunt operation for the time being," Brar said.
The team did not find any pug marks of the leopard on Wednesday night.
