16 Sheep Killed, 7 Others Injured In Leopard Attack

SRINAGAR: At least sixteen sheep were mauled to death even as over half a dozen left injured by a leopard in Ashmuqam Nowgam last night.

Quoting the owner of the sheep Ghulam Mohiuddin Mir news agency GNS reported that a leopard barged inside his built shed at around 3 AM.

“On hearing the noise I tried to save the sheep but the leopard even made bids on me,” Mir said adding he barely escaped the attack of the ferocious animal.

“Once the leopard left, I counted 16 sheep dead and seven others severely injured,” Mir said.

Urging the authorities to compensate him for the loss, Mir said he had taken a loan to raise the farm. “I hope the authorities will come here to see for themselves what havoc the leopard had wrecked and compensate me accordingly,” Mir further said.
