In Nandur Shingote of Sinnar taluka, farmers have reported sightings of leopards in different areas over the last two to three days. In some places, dogs have become their prey. Two days ago, a leopard mauled a calf at the residence of Sanchit Shelke at the foothills of the Forest. Following this, a leopard was hit by a vehicle on the Nashik-Pune route.

On Tuesday night at eight o'clock, near Mengal's residence at Manori Bypass, a leopard attacked and killed a pet dog. After this, the leopard remained in a neighbouring field. Despite the shouts of the farmers and villagers, it stayed put.
