Leopard rescued after six hours from wellFebruary 8th, 2011 - 7:30 pm ICT by IANS
Bhopal, Feb 8 (IANS) A day after a tiger was rescued from a well near Nagpur, a one-and-a-half year-old leopard was Tuesday extricated from a well in Dewas district of Madhya Pradesh after a six-hour rescue operation, officials said.”When I reached my fields in the morning around 7 a.m., I heard a sound from the well. I looked and found a leopard in the well,” said Chaganlal, a farmer.
Chagan informed the forest department. But soon, a large number of villagers gathered near the well. They made many attempts to take out the leopard, but to no success.
“Later, we used a cage and successfully took out the leopard from the well,” said B.S. Annagiri, the forest conservator.
The leopard would be released in the Dewas forest area after a medical check-up.
On Monday, a full grown adult tiger had fallen into a 40-feet-deep dry well near Nagpur. He was rescued after a three-hour rescue operation.
