A fatal attack on a leopard in the central district of Ganderbul has ignited public outrage and raised serious questions about the competence and ethics of wildlife department officials. The incident, which occurred in the village of Fatehpur, unfolded in the presence of wildlife authorities, shedding light on the inadequacies within the department and the urgent need for reform.

The distressing viral video captured the gruesome scene as wildlife department officials, armed with sticks, mercilessly attacked the trapped leopard. Despite the animal’s attempts to escape, the officials’ archaic methods resulted in a fatal outcome, leaving the public and authorities alike shocked and appalled.

The footage not only revealed the brutality inflicted upon the leopard but also exposed the incompetence of the wildlife department in handling such situations. Instead of employing modern and humane techniques, officials resorted to violence, endangering not only their own lives but also those of bystanders, including a woman and a policeman who were injured during the altercation.

As questions mount regarding the department’s protocols and preparedness, calls for accountability are growing louder. Wildlife advocates are demanding that a thorough investigation be conducted, and those responsible for the leopard’s mistreatment be held accountable through the registration of a First Information Report (FIR).

This incident serves as a sobering reminder of the challenges posed by human-wildlife conflicts and the importance of proper training, equipment, and coordination among wildlife management authorities. Moving forward, there is an urgent need for reform within the wildlife department to ensure the protection and welfare of both wild animals and human communities.
