Forest officials reunite leopard cubs with their mother
Vadodara: A team of forest officials rescued a one-and-half-month-old leopard cub, which had fallen in a well of a farm in Una area in Junagadh district, and succeeded in reuniting it with its mother, a senior official said friday.
The feline had fallen into a well last night behind the Goddess Ambaji temple on the Delvada road area in the district, deputy conservator of forests Anshuman Sharma told PTI
"The leopard cub was trapped alive inside a well. As soon as we received the information, our team rushed to the site and rescued it safely with the help of a rope," Sharma said.
The team was informed after local farmers working near the well on a farm owned by one Jaisingbhai Zanwat, spotted the leopard cub inside the well.
The forest team also spotted another leopard cub in the same farm which was kept along with the rescued one. The team waited at a nearby spot for a couple of hours, expecting their mother leopard to reach there to take custody of her cubs.
Late, in the evening, the leopard reached the spot after it was dark, took both her cubs and disappeared into the nearby forest, Sharma added.
