Sullia: A leopard cub was found trapped at Kudembi near Kolchar on the outskirts earlier this. It appeared to have got entangeld by a cable snare set for wild boars which have been a menace for agricultural farms and produce.
A student passing by the forest path spotted it wriggling in pain and informed the forest officials, who immediately arrived on the scene.
Veterinarians and animal handlers arrived from Pilikula and administered tranquillizer shots. Late reports said that much before it could be shifted to the Pilikula park, it succumbed to injuries which were quite severe because of the cable had got tightly entangled around its waist.
