Bengaluru: The search operation is still on for the leopards in the Mysuru-Bengaluru border area. Meanwhile, the forest department officials are now guessing that there is a possibility that the leopards may have gone back into the forest.

The officials recently sounded a high alert in Kengeri and surrounding localities after the locals spotted four leopards in the area.

Recently, four big cats were sighted in Kengeri, Kumbalagodu, Devanahalli and nearby areas. The authorities have found the carcass of a deer killed by a leopard in Kodipalya near Kanakapura on the outskirts of Bengaluru.

In Devanahalli, a leopard was seen near Chikkajala on the premises of ITC Company, as per CCTV footage accessed by News9. A team of five officials from the Karnataka Forest Department searched the area but the big cat remained untraceable, the News9 report said.

It is feared that the leopards are straying into residential areas from Turahalli Reserve Forest located close to Bengaluru. Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) has built a new layout in the region and fear has gripped morning walkers and local residents.

A cage has been kept to trap the prowling feline on the premises of a private factory in Tarabanahalli in Devanahalli taluk of Bengaluru Rural district.

In the past few days, people have spotted the leopards several times. However, wildlife experts maintain that leopards in the region are found naturally, and hence, there is no need for panic.

The authorities and wildlife experts have advised the people against venturing out alone at night. They have also been asked to keep away from the reserve forests, not play songs on their mobiles and talk loudly when they are moving at night.
