TANAHU: Kennel has gradually become effective in entrapping leopards in Tanahu.

The Division Forest Office, Tanahu has constructed entraps to take control of the jungle cat after it menaced the safety of the local residents.

The iron and wooden kennel has been kept in different places to entrap the rampaging wild beast.

Chief of Division Forest Office, Tanahun Komal Raj Kafle informed that the traps have been placed in different 18 places prone to leopard attack.

He said the new measure was taken to safely entrap leopards and send them to wildlife conservation areas when the wild beast was increasingly threatening human life.

There is a high chance that the leopard repeats its rampaging activities in the areas where it attacked once so the traps have been placed in the same areas, he further said.

After the construction of ponds in different areas, the incidents of human-wildlife encounters have declined lately, he shared.

Pond construction was given priority as most of the wildlife attacks had occurred when the animals entered the human settlement for quenching their thirst.

During the span of six years, 14 children were killed and 17 injured in leopard attacks in the district alone.

Leopard rampage was frequent in different local level units of the district, including Bhanu, Bandipur, Anbukhaireni and Byas.
