Good narration Doctor Saab!

"A day later I realised that there were not two but three leopards in the area. A cow killed and eaten 2 kms away confirmed the presence of a third leopard within an area of a few square kilometers.
Our job was to identify and trap / eliminatel the killer before it made another human kill."
Was re-reading this very interesting post once again and this bit in particular from the story drives home the sad reality of how this beautiful cat is forced to adapt to living within such a constrained space! It's going to be very difficult to mitigate man animal conflicts at this rate.

This story , had it written in one post, would appear as if narrated by Jim Corbett.

Brother Prashant certainly tells an exciting story here!

If any newer member reads this, I strongly recommend that they would go back to the beginning of the thread for a most interesting story. You don't even have to buy a book -- you can read it here on IFG, directly from one of our members!

How I wish Prashant would write another story and share it with us sometime. There are so few opportunities to hear a very entertaining story like this, and learn important things at the same time, to shape our views on these matters.
