Leopard rescued after it fell into well in western India

A leopard was rescued after it fell into a well in western India’s Maharashtra.

This incident happened in the Kavathani area of Sawantwadi in Sindhudurg district on July 28.


Visuals showed the leopard inside the well. The big cat had hung on to a pipe by grabbing it with its jaws. The forest department officials laid a net over the well, and then, a cage was lowered to capture the animal. The leopard itself crept into the cage as soon as it was lowered, which made the rescue operation much easier. The cage was brought out of the well along with the leopard inside of it.

According to a report, forest ranger Madan Kshirsagar and his Sawantwadi forest department team reached the spot after receiving information about this leopard. It was a three-year-old male leopard, and it has been learnt that it probably fell into the well while chasing a prey. The rescue operation was conducted with the leadership of Conservator of Forest, Sawantwadi, Shri.S Navkishore Reddy, Foresters Madan Kshirsagar, Pratap Koli, Forest Guards Appasaheb Rathod, Sagar Bhohane, Prakash Rangire, Mahadev Gejge, Dhananjay Yadav, Padate Bhau, and Sarpanch of Kavathani village, Ajit Kavthankar. Local villagers also played an active role in this mission.
