Leopard rescued from well in Junagadh village
Times of India
A leopard was rescued from drowning in a well after it fell into it early on Monday morning. The incident was reported from Damli village of Kodinar taluka in Junagadh district.
Nature lover and member of Prakriti Nature Club of Kodinar Dinesh Goswami, who was part of the rescue team, said, " We got an alert by some farmers of Damli village about the leopard at 11.30 am. At the spot, we found the leopard almost drowning. First, we lowered a cot into the well onto which the animal jumped and then we called the forest department."
Range forest officer L D Parmar of Jamawala forest range and a veterinary doctor joined the rescue team by 12.30 pm and after a two hour operation the big cat was brought out unscathed.
Goswami said, "We carry out voluntary rescues of wild animals across Kodinar and are also active in many whale shark rescues, which get caught in fishing nets. We are trying to apply for government aid to help us make our rescue operations more professional and effective."
