Myagdi, 3 October : A leopard’s regular arrival at Aulagaun of Histan in Annapurna rural municipality-3, Myagdi since a week has caused panic among the locals. In a week, the animal killed four goats, two dogs and 20 domestic fowls in the village.
“It enters the village almost every night,” complained a local Yam Prasad Purja. It has so far killed two goats kept by Tika Ghatane and two of Dhan Kumar BK, two dogs, 14 fowls raised by Sandesh Ranjita and six of Yam Prasad Ranjit by entering their sheds in night.
Locals said they are fearful of possible consequences from the wild animal and lock up themselves inside their houses before dusk falls. It is said the leopard started entering the village after it failed to find food in the jungle.
