Chandrapur: It is very common to have a bloody struggle to maintain supremacy among the fierce animals living in the forest. Here an animal often hunts another animal to keep itself alive and fill its stomach. Although Leopard and Tiger are considered to be the hunter animals of the forest, but if these two hunters come face to face then it is very difficult to decide who will win and who will lose. Meanwhile, a surprising case has come to light from Chandrapur in Maharashtra, where a female leopard was found dead on Thursday morning in the forest of Talodhi forest range.
