As per the local media report, the leopard fell into a well on farm land. After the farmer spotted the wild cat, he immediately called the forest department.
The forest department team used ladders and ropes to rescue the leopard, which was visibly scared. After the jungle cat climbed atop the tied platform, it was pulled up.
Like the members of the rescue team, the netizens were also surprised to see how the wild cat did not attack the rescuers and set an example for coexistence of humans and the wild.
