A menacing leopard fell into a trap laid at Beechanahalli near Kabini reservoir, H D Kote.
The two-year-old leopard was giving sleepless nights to the villagers by killing their cattle and wreaking havoc in the village since few days.
Upon complaint from the villagers, the forest department had set up a trap cage in the village. On Friday morning, the leopard was trapped. Forest officials have decided to release the leopard in the far away jungle.
