This full-grown leopard was caught in a trap set in the jungle off Angurumulla in Gampola, died after a futile 15-hour struggle to escape. The villagers who had heard the growling of the writhing animal had found it with a noose tightening around its neck, but were afraid to go near it. Some people had rung up the Police on its emergency number 119 and the Wild Life Department. But neither police nor Wild Life officials had turned up and the animal had died after hours of agony.“The leopard could have been easily saved if it was released from the trap,” villagers told.
