Police officers visit the site along the Naparima/Mayaro Road in George Village Tableland where a dead ocelot was found on Thursday.

In this country, the sight of dead animals on the side of our roadways have become a norm. But the carcass of an endangered and exotic wildcat caused a stir in the quiet village of tableland this morning. Guardian media’s Rishi Ragoonath spoke with some of the villagers and Ria ​​​​​​​Rambally tells us, they believe the animal’s death was no accident.
