Kashmir farmer injured by Leopard.

A farmer from Budgam District in Jammu and Kashmir, India, is being treated in Chadoora Hospital after being attacked by a Leopard on Sunday 31 March 2019. Shameem Ahmad Bhat, from Madbal Village was attacked by a female Leopard shortly after finding two cubs, which he initially assumed to be domestic Cats. The cubs were later captured by Wildlife Department officers, who report they were both severely undernourished, and steps attempts are still being made to capture the mother. It is possible that the animals had come onto the farmers property searching for food.

Leopards are considered to be Vulnerable under the terms of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature's Red List of Threatened Species, with the Indian subspecies, Panthera pardus fusca, considered to be particularly vulnerable due to India's rapidly rising Human population, which has resulted in agriculture and other Human activities expanding into many former wilderness areas. For this reason the Indian Forest Service usually try to relocate Leopards that come into conflict with Humans to more remote areas, preferably within national parks, though the extent to which local people co-operate is variable.
