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.
As reported by the Times of India:
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.
