Leopard trapped in a 70-foot deep open well
« Reply #120 on: March 15, 2022, 01:57:12 pm »
This four year old female leopard was trapped in a 70-foot deep open well in Otur located in Pune district, Maharashtra. Quick-thinking villagers alerted Wildlife SOS and the Forest Department, and she was saved from certain death. This photo was taken by staff photographer Akash.

Wildlife SOS is tackling the problem of open wells head-on. In Maharashtra, 95 leopards died in open wells in just the first six months of 2021. The number of open wells in India is massive, so our project is identifying the most dangerous wells, and initially covering 40 or the wells known to have trapped wildlife.

An approx. 4-year-old female Leopard was found trapped in a 70-feet-deep uncovered well in Otur located in Pune district, Maharashtra.  #Wildlife SOS & the Forest Department rushed to the rescue and carefully extricated the leopard in a harrowing 2 hour long operation.

The incident took place just days after a male leopard was rescued from a 50-feet-deep well in Alkuti village, Ahmednagar district.

Wildlife SOS is in the process of working with farmers and the Forest Department to cover open wells in Maharashtra and to protect leopards. You too can be a part of the change by donating to this effort: https://give.wildlifesos.org
