Leopard rescued from well in Junagadh village
A young leopard, which had fallen into a well in Alidhara village of Junagadh district, has been rescued, forest officials said on Thursday.
Anshuman Sharma, Assistant Conservator of Forests, said the animal was rescued by Gujarat Forest staff within half an hour of the incident, which occurred on Wednesday in a farm owned by Raghubhai Zala.
Hearing the cries of the leopard, people gathered near the well and forest officials in Jamwala range were immediately contacted.
Subsequently, the animal was rescued using ropes.
The wild cat was later sent to Sasan for a medical check up from where it was released into the forests, Sharma said.
