He also said the police and wild parks officials had failed to locate the lion resulting in the villagers hunting it down.

According to the villager, the lion had killed a Brahman bull and wounded a cow.

The last stroke, the villager said, was when the lion killed a dog.

A police officer who spoke on condition of anonymity said they were alerted to the lion’s presence on Feb. 9.
