Mysuru: The Forest Department is using a thermal camera drone for a leopard rescue operation for the first time in the State. These cameras are usually used in military and border patrol operations.

The leopard has been evading capture for the last two weeks while prowling over T Narsipur and the nearby areas. Rescue operations have been hindered by the leopard hiding in the sugarcane fields. A drone that has thermal imaging cameras has been put to use.

The thermal camera picks up the temperature variations that an object emits. Whether it is day or night, these cameras can detect the thermal radiation that warm-blooded animals emit as their heat signature.

According to sources, a team of five skilled experts has been employed for this operation.
