Mysuru, January 14:- A leopard attacked a man in Kolagala village in HD Kote taluk on Thursday (January 13).
Chandraraje Urs, the victim of the attack, had gone to check up on the animals when he heard a loud noise coming from the cowshed at 4:30 in the morning where the leopard attacked him.
The neighbours rushed to the spot when they heard Urs screaming for help, but the animal escaped. He was immediately shifted to the Government Hospital in the taluk for injuries he sustained on his head, back and elbow.
The locals suspect that the leopard which attacked Urs is one of the two leopards seen swimming in the Kapila River between Madapura and Chikkuru a few days ago. (AM/SH,KS)
