One of the easiest prey for leopards, pet dogs. In human habitations important to stay alert at all times when near the peripheries of a forest landscape.

It's most likely a stray dog, not a pet— ðÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ (@wilsherefan_7) October 15, 2019

Soo poor hope it is alive... Make the dogs stay and sleep inside a particular home for it— Deepak (@Deepak30257117) October 16, 2019
I think it is not a pet ðÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ dog. Pet or street whatever it is, I hope the ðÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ was saved by the Lord. ðÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂðÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ #animals #leopard— Ranjan Kumar Bose (@RanjanKumarBos5) October 15, 2019
