In Doon, teachers, doctors, businessmen, contractors hunt down man-eater leopards


#Dehradun #Uttarakhand Prashant Singh, a Doon-based dentist is among a select tribe of professionals who have staid day jobs but are passionate about hunting killer big cats. Such professionals - who work as teachers, contractors and businessmen - are often called in for help by the forest department when an animal turns man-eater. According to a TOI report, Singh hunted down a man-eater stalking the city's cantonment area a few years ago. “I remember the terror the animal caused. It killed a woman and a young girl. Prashant managed to trace the animal and brought it down in one shot,“ recalls conservationist Vinod Giri.
