Doctors from the Bannerghatta Zoological Gardens have been called in to take precautions, and cages have been installed in the area, according to Subhash K. Malkhede, principal chief conservator of forests (wildlife) and chief wildlife warden of Karnataka. Tranquillizer weapons have also been supplied to the forest officials. He remarked, “As soon as we spot the leopard, we will take it away and tranquillise it if required.”
A forest authority, however, claimed that the video going around claiming to show the leopard near Singasandra in Electronic City was actually near the Bannerghatta National Park.
The official said, “Also, we are trying to locate the leopard and have asked the public and security staff of the apartments to pass the message. We are watching the movements of stray dogs, which might be hunted by the leopard.”
There are several biotechnology and information technology companies in Electronic City, and the people who live there are terrified. It has been recommended to the locals not to go out alone at night or in the evening. They can use autos or public transportation if necessary.
Based on an analysis of the leopard’s activities, two cages have been set up, and two drones are being utilized to see if the animal is hiding in the vegetated regions. The deputy conservator of forests for Bengaluru Urban, N Ravindra Kumar, stated that thermal imaging cameras are being deployed for monitoring.
