A leopard mauled seven sheep to death, ate two lambs and fled with one in Khaipora village of Khansahib in central Kashmir’s Budgam district last night, officials said on Tuesday.
Quoting the officials, news agency reported that the beast barged into the cattle shed of Mohammad Ismail Sheikh, a local and killed seven sheep.
Besides, it ate two lambs and took one away and fled into the nearby forest area, they added.
