When I reached the spot at about 7.30am, I also informed the Guwahati Zoo authorities to help tranquilize the animal. By the time the veterinary team reached, the leopard that had likely spent hours struggling to free itself from the trap managed to escape into the forest but could not save itself from death,” said Jitender Kumar, Divisional Forest Officer (DFO), Guwahati Wildlife Division.
