A female leopard that had fallen into a well in Maharashtra state’s Ranjani Village was pulled out to safety in a three-hour operation by a team from Wildlife SOS’ Manekdoh Leopard Rescue Center. The incident happened last Tuesday.
The leopard is currently being treated at the Wildlife SOS MLR Center.
At 6am last Tuesday, villagers “turned on the motor pump to the village well, only to hear a loud, panicked roaring echoing sound from deep within the well. The villagers were shocked to find that a leopard was gasping for breath in the fifty-feet deep well, clinging desperately to an exposed pipe in an attempt to prevent itself from drowning.
