The rescued leopard.

The forest officials on Friday rescued a five-year-old male leopard which had fallen into a well at Homadi-Mandadi village near Hunsemakki late on Thursday night.

The leopard, which tried to capture a dog, accidentally fell into the well of one Babi Kulalthi.

The forest officials were informed at 2 am and they immediately rushed to the spot. The officials rescued the dog using a basket. But the leopard that had hidden in a hollow part inside the well could not be rescued immediately.

On Friday morning, the officials lowered a cage inside the well and the leopard entered the cage.

The rescued leopard was later released into the forest, the officials said.
