A leopard caught in CCTV footage at a shopping mall in Thane Maharashtra this morning.
In recent days man and wild animal encounters have been increasing, a few days back Tamil Nadu forest department
was struggling to get the Chinnathambi elephant into the forest. Environmentalists say that these encounters increase because
of human intervention in forest habitat. Many reports say that we have encroached vast forest habitats.
Thane city in Maharashtra is also called lake city which has 30 lakes.
5:30 am in the morning a leopard was caught in the CCTV footage of a shopping mall in Thane.
The Maharashtra forest department say though the leopard has left the mall they are trying to
track down the leopard to avoid any encounters in the human habitat. To avoid any mishap mall has been shutdown today.
