Reports say a leopard is roaming out freely in Hisar that has caused panic among the villagers. The threat is also among the Dhanis who live near the deer park that is located about 6km from the Hisar city on Dhansu-Hisar road. Recently a wildlife officer encountered a carcass of a black buck that he suspects to have been killed by an animal that belongs to the cat family.
The wildlife district officer, Rameshar Kumar was reported saying that the team has sent samples of saliva, pug marks and hair of the animal to the wildlife institute of India in Dehradun and the report is likely to come by Monday. We have formed four teams that are keeping round the clock vigil in the area. They have also come to know that a farmer working in a field near the deer farm spotted the animal once.
The villagers are furious about the animal and daily visit the wildlife office at Dhansu to know whether the wild animal has been captivated or not. The villagers are willing to help the district officers in getting hold of the animal. The officer as reported saying that they have already shifted 110 deer including Cheetal, Sambar, blackbuck, and many others at the treatment park that is spread on 2.5 acres.
The residents of Dhansu village live under the constant threat from the wild animal and have now started to keep their cattle inside their houses. The other nearby villages that surround the Dhansu village includes Mirzapur, Sulakhni, Bugana, and Dhinktana. According to the sarpanch of the village, Manohar Lal Bhakar, they have asked the residents of the village to start thikri-pahera which means night vigil and keep in touch with the officers of the wildlife. No matter what, the officers are trying their best to capture the wild leopard at the earliest and stop innocent people from dying.
