Mussoorie (Uttarakhand), Oct.18 (ANI): The forest administration in Mussoorie recovered the body of a leopard believe to be killed in a road accident.

The officials found the jaws of the animal broken with no other major injuries in the body.

The leopard's corpse has been sent for post-mortem.

"It came in the evening and probably jumped over a fence and fell on the road where it must have been hit by a speeding vehicle. It died at the spot," B. D. Singh, sub-divisional officer of the Uttarakhand Wildlife Department said on Sunday.

"It was a one-and-a-half or two-year-old male. We will do a post-mortem to find out the exact cause of the death," he added. By Vipul Goel (ANI)
