Our World- Scary visitors
My daughter was watching the Euro 2012 football match a few nights ago, when she and her husband heard a growl.. They peeped out from the window and were thrilled to see a huge leopard in their car porch. And this happened in the IIT campus in Mumbai, which is adjoining the Borivili National Park. As they were watching the leopard, a second one sprang down from a tree nearby!
After a lot of activity for the next two days by the forest guards, the big cats were persuaded to go back to the jungle from where they came.
Leopards, elephants and other wild animals are increasingly coming into cities because their habitat is being reduced constantly by greedy humans.
