A leopard was found dead in Uttarakhand's Dharanaula on Sunday.

Initial investigation suggests the leopard was hit by a speeding vehicle at the Dharanaula-Pithoragarh Road. The carcass was found with grave injuries in the face.

Officials from the forest department reached the spot and took the dead feline to their centre to ascertain the exact cause of the death.
