March 19, 2015 BY WEBDESK

The regional office of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Wildlife Department recovered the carcass of a leopard from the Tarnawa suburb of Abbotabad.

After conducting a post-mortem on the animal, it was discovered that the leopard had been poisoned.

The Wildlife Department found the leopard dumped along the side of the road. It had likely been transported there by a vehicle.

The leopard along with two others had eaten poisoned meat, authorities said. The bodies of the two other leopards have not yet been recovered.

The Divisional Wildlife Officer alerted the police of the incident and appealed to them for the immediate arrest of the ‘mafia’ believed to be responsible for the killing of these endangered animals.
