On receiving information about a leopard lying injured at Inshi village in the district’s tribal-dominated Kalwan taluka yesterday, the forest officials managed to bring it into a cage after sedating the feline, forest range officer R P Dhomse said.

The leopard’s right leg was found injured, Dhomse said, adding that they suspect that somebody might have tried to catch the carnivore with a rope, but it broke the rope and got wounded.

After treatment, the leopard was taken to the Nashik’s forest garden, he added.
