Annaiah, a villager, speaking to Star of Mysore this morning said that he had seen a leopard jumping from a tree and entering his field about 12 days ago. He further said that yesterday, the leopard had chased a pig from the village and killed it in his field. “It has also killed my pet cat and a few dogs too,” Annaiah said.
