NAGPUR: Close on the heels of a tiger being brutally killed in Borda adjoining Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve (TATR) in Chandrapur on Friday, three leopards were electrocuted near Mansinghdeo wildlife sanctuary, 80km from city, on Sunday.

 

A full-grown male and female leopard and a cub were charred to death when they came in contact with a transmission pole that accidentally came in contact with live electric wire it was supporting. The tragedy took place in compartment no. 655 of Saleghat forest range under the Forest Development Corporation of Maharashtra (FDCM).
