Rajvi said he saw the big cat (ST-3) climbing a tree to catch its prey. When the leopard fell from the tree, ST-3 jumped on it and killed it within a few minutes.

In what can be termed as a rare wildlife incident, a tiger in the Sariska Tiger Reserve in Alwar district of Rajasthan attacked and killed a leopard and carried the carcass in its mouth.
