Badnawar (Madhya Pradesh): In order to trap a wild animal, possibly a hyena straying around, a team of the forest department put cages at different locations in Kathoriya village of Badnawar tehsil of Dhar district.

A labourer working in his agricultural field was attacked by a stray hyena which caused major injuries to him. On hearing his screams, other farmers working in adjacent fields rushed to help following which animal ran away and hid in the forest area.

After the officials learned of the hyena’s presence in the area, it triggered a sense of panic among the residents. Forest Guard Radheshyam Meda along with forest workers set up a trap cage to capture the hyena and launched a departmental-level search operation to catch it.
