The carcass of an about one-year-old male leopard was found in a rivulet in the Bankatwa range of Sohelwa forest area, an official said on Wednesday.
Forest officer Semmaran M said the carcass was found in a hill rivulet in Bankatwa range.
He added that no injury or any other kind of marks were found on the animal’s body.
The carcass has been sent for post-mortem examination, he said, adding the cause of death will be clear after the report comes in.
He, however, suspected the leopard may have died due to an illness.
