To search for the leopard, the team of the Pune Forest Department and ResQ Trust is closely monitoring the movement of the leopard and a camera trap has been set up.

Since the area is covered with trees and bushes, it is difficult to track the leopard. Also, public awareness is being created on behalf of the forest department in terms of security measures in this area and all efforts are being made by the forest department to rescue leopards.
