Forest guards in western India are using cell phones with ringtones(铃音)of COWS mooing，goats bleating and roosters crowing to attract leopards(豹)that have wandered into human settlements，officials said on Monday．
The wild cats in the state of Gujarat often get into villages near forests in search of food，say officials, adding that this results in attacks on people．But rather than use methods such as live bait(诱惑物)like goats tied to trees to attract the leopards，which then fall into large pits dug by guards，officials say they have found a safer method to trap the eats．
“The moos of a cow, bleating of a goat from the phone has proved effective to trap leopards,” said D. Vasani, a senior forest official in Gujarat.“This trick works,”Vasani said forest guards have downloaded the sounds of over a dozen animals as ringtones on their mobiles which they attach to speakers and fix behind a cage. They then play the ringtone continuously for up to two hours until the curious leopard appears and moves into the cage looking for its easy meal.
At least five leopards have so far been caught from villages since the new ringtone method was introduced three months ago．The cats have all been freed back into forest areas．
Wildlife activists welcomed the new measure saying that previous methods of trapping the cats using pits often resulted in the animals getting injured．

Recently，our school has held the meaningful discussion on whether it is reasonable for middle school students to have classes on weekends．Some of our classmates believe we should have classes on weekends．because we can make fully use of the free time to review the lessons we had learnt．Some others are against the opinion，saying we had better to have a good rest on weekends so that we can work effective during the weekdays．The rest agree with neither of the opinion．They have the view which keeping the balance between work and play are both important for us．They suggest one day of the weekend should used to learn our lessens and during the other day they do something interested or have a rest．
