Saidpur on high alert after three leopards enter village

On Thursday night, three leopards entered the Margalla Hills region in Islamabad, prompting the Islamabad Capital Police to send a force to the Saidpur Village.

Details show that the three leopards entered the area as the residents of Saidpur Village were running for their lives.

The Wildlife Management Board warned the locals to use caution and limit their activities while notifications were sent from the nearby mosques.

According to wildlife experts, leopards rarely attack people, but they occasionally do so out of rage when they see a lot of people.

The local government has urged the residents to maintain peace, and in the interim, a portion of the Islamabad Capital Police has been stationed in the region.

In Case of any emergency, call 15, the Capital Police advised.

Another leopard was killed in a village in Azad Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday, according to Islamabad Wildlife Management Board (IWMB) chairperson Rina S. Khan Satti.

She claimed in a series of tweets that the wild cat was killed by a mob of 200 villagers in Jhelum Valley’s Hattian Bala.

“Heartbreaking news: yet another common leopard was killed today by villagers in Azad Kashmir.” “A mob of 200 attacked a leopard who came close to the village and mercilessly killed the animal,” the chairperson tweeted.
