Palamu, Jharkhand, Jan 21: A leopard strayed from a nearby jungle into the house of a resident Amardeep Lakra in Birsa Nagar adjoining Chainpur in Palamu district on Sunday.  



Forest department officials trapped the leopard after an 8-hour-long operation, and the animal was carted away in a cage, to be freed again in the wild.  

A reporter M. Pandey belonging to a local newspaper was  mauled by the animal while taking photographs. He was seriously injured and was admitted to the Daltonganj hospital for treatment.  

Amardeep Lakra was on a morning walk with his dog, when the leopard suddenly pounced upon his pet. The dog ran away, and the leopard hid inside a room. Lakra locked the room and rang up the forest department.  

Soon a big crowd collected to watch the forest department's operation.
