The administration has asked children, elderly people and women to not roam around alone and were instructed to be back indoors by 6 pm everyday. People were also asked to not roam around alone in the planes near the forest. If the villagers spotted a leopard, they were asked to not make a group around the animal and make noises or harm it. If the leopard had killed a domestic animal that belonged to one of the villagers, they were asked not to touch the carcass. Villagers were also encouraged to contact the T Narasipura taluk forest department if they have any information about the leopard.
