Two one-month-old leopard cubs were found lying abandoned from a sugarcane field in a village near Veraval on Wednesday.

According to forest department, the cubs were sighted in the field belonging to Jetha Jadav in Bosan village on Wednesday morning. "We visited the site after Jadav alerted us. The cubs believed to be aged one-month-old are in a healthy condition. However, instead of caging them, we've decided to keep them at the spot so that their mother can come and take them away, as the cubs are best cared for by their mother," said a forester.

However, as the female leopard did not visit the cubs on Wednesday night, forest officials have decided to wait for another two days and nights, after which, they are likely to take the cubs in their custody.
