18th May, 2017: On the same day that a leopard was found dead because he could not escape in time from the snare trap, a gaur was also found trapped in a snare trap in Mollem. Should locals be allowed to lay snare traps, is a question to be raised now. The gaur reportedly strayed into inhabited areas near Mollem due to low water availability in the watering holes inside Mollem forest. Since the gaur is a state animal, laying snare traps to catch them is an illegal act.
