LEOPARD SAVED FROM 60-FOOT DEEP WELL (Video)

LEOPARD SAVED FROM 60-FOOT DEEP WELL (Video)

This past Sunday in Pimpalgaon Siddhanath village, locals, together with rescue experts, saved a leopard that had fallen in to a 60-foot deep well. The leopard was close to drowning, clinging onto a rope to stay survive. The rescue took place in west-central India, in a state best known for the city of Mumbai.

After a farmer heard distressing cries coming from the well, he contacted officials at the country’s forest department and a rescue crew quickly organized. The tactics and equipment used were rudimentary, but functional. After its rescue, the leopard was determined to be a female and in good health. She was released back into the wild.

Unfortunately, a rescue like the one you will see here happens about once a week due to these open wells. Thank goodness there are people with hearts and determination to save many of them.
