DEHRADUN, Dec 3
In a bizarre incident, a leopard pounced upon youths who were riding a motorcycle in Almora district of Uttarakhand.
The incident happened during afternoon hours on Sunday. Almora residents Anil and Pawan Bisht were part of the marriage procession and were travelling in their motorcycle to Nainital when near Ratighat, a leopard pounced upon leading to disbalancing of their vehicle. The two injured youth were rushed to B.D. Pandey hospital for treatment.
Fortunately, the leopard fled after the incident. The motorcycle borne youth were followed by a marriage procession bus. The inmates of the bus got a sigh of relief after leopard left the scene.
The leopard attacks on humans have increased manifold in recent months particularly the situation has turned from bad to worse during winters.
