The Wildlife Department says steps will be taken to take legal action against the killing of a leopard in Kilinochchi.

The Department said that a group of villagers in Ambalkulam in Kilinochchi had killed the leopard alleging that the animal attacked them.

The Director-General of the Department C. Sooriyabandara said that area residents had obstructed the wildlife officers from carrying out their duties when they had attempted to capture the leopard.

However, the area residents complained that the wildlife officers arrived at the scene without proper equipment to carry out the task.

The villagers said that they decided to catch the leopard after it had attacked 10 individuals from their village.

The injured villagers were required to be admitted to Kilinochchi Hospital.
