Karnataka: Panic as leopard seen in Brindavan Gardens | Mysuru News – Times of India

MYSURU: A leopard-spotted moving inside popular tourist spot Brindavan Gardens at KRS Reservoir in Srirangapatna taluk, Mandya district, has triggered panic among the reservoir staff and tourists.
The CCTV cameras installed near the south gate of the garden showed the big cat moving around the area on Thursday night, officials said.
According to sources, big cats regularly enter villages near the dam area in search of food. “But this is the first time a leopard was spotted inside the garden, which is visited by thousands of tourists every day. Measures have been put in place for the safety of tourists,” they added.
Range forest officer Sunitha said they have tracked pugmarks and have placed trap cages at the garden and nearby villages – Mahadevapura and Neralakere – to capture the male leopard which has been moving in the area for the past one week.
Forest department officials visited the spot after gram panchayat officials filed a complaint.
