Tension prevails as leopard wanders into Hetero Pharma unit in Sangareddy

On Friday night, an adult leopard wandered into the Hetero Pharmaceuticals Limited unit at Gadda Potharam Industrial Area in Sangareddy district.

It was reported that the leopard spent the entire night inside the plant. Security personnel who noticed it inside the industry notified forest and police officials. Forest officials have requested that the Nehru Zoological Park send an expert team to rescue the leopard, who was still inside the pharma unit when the last reports came in.

This isn’t the first time a leopard has gotten into the industry. In April of this year, a leopard was captured on CCTV in the industry. The straying of wild cats from the Narsapur forest area into the districts of Sangareddy and Medak has become quite common.

A leopard killed two calves near Nathnaipally in Narsapur Mandal, which is very close to the Hetero unit, in November.

Cotton harvesting in Adilabad impacted by tiger scare

Farmers in the erstwhile Adilabad district are in a difficult situation. They are upbeat by a significant increase in cotton produce prices, but they are also afraid to harvest the crop in the aftermath of increased tiger movement and a recent human kill reported in Kumram Bheem Asifabad district.

Cotton growers were incredibly happy to receive a record-high rate of Rs 9,100 per quintal of cotton and hoped it would soon surpass Rs 10,000. Some had already begun harvesting the crop.

However, many farmers have yet to begin the activity, fearing attacks by animals, particularly tigers, following a number of recent tiger sightings in the area, including near agriculture fields.

“We are tensed over the movement of tigers in the fringes of forests and agriculture fields. Hiring laborers has become a tough task considering the unprecedented sighting of tigers in farms. Incidentally, two out of three human kills occurred in Kumram Bheem Asifabad district from 2020 to 2022 and during the harvesting season of the cotton crop,” K Narayana, a farmer from Karjelli village in Chintalamanepalli mandal said.
