Hyderabad: A leopard that had been haunting several villages in Yacharam, Kadthal and Kandukur mandals in Ranga Reddy district was reported to have killed yet another calf sometime late on Friday night near Ekvaipally village, taking its tally of cattle kills to 33 since January this year.

This is the second time that the leopard stalked cattle at Evkaipally in Kadthal mandal in less than a month. It had on June 30 killed a calf close to the Mudwin reserve forest area. Though forest officials have placed trap cages to catch the leopard at different locations, including near Govindayapally, Charikonda, Yacharam, Kottapally, Medipally and Ekvaipally villages, the big cat has eluded the efforts to trap it so far.
