One more leopard was trapped on Tuesday by forest officials in continuing efforts to prevent wild cat attacks on humans in the periphery of Sanjay Gandhi National Park in north Mumbai, taking the total number of leopards caught since last week to six.
The cage at the Mulund Colony was one of the 35 set up by forest authorities in and around the national park following increased attacks by leopards on humans.
All the trapped leopards would be relocated in the forests of eastern Maharashtra, the sources added.
Fourteen people have been killed in leopard attacks in Mumbai this year.
