Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer Susanta Nanda recently shared a video showing the rescue of a leopard to draw attention to the problem of open springs around animal habitats.
The short clip shows the leopard being lifted out of the pit and leaving the place as soon as it is pulled out. In the caption, Mr Nanda noted that such incidents will decrease as wells around animal habitats are closed. He also delved into the ancient technique of saving the leopard, calling it the “Mohenjo Daro Harappan technology”.

“This should be understood as a mission mode project, identification, GPS tagging open wells and covering them from above with a Mild Steel screen or checkerboard locally made jali by welding thick MS rods. That saves a lot of hassle,” writes one “Why can’t the IFS jointly ask the Ministry of Environment to come up with such changes. They must all face some common problems like this,” added another.
“The leopard appears to be grateful and ran off without harming anyone. Hats off to the forest department,” said the third. “I think this is the greatest professional satisfaction you can get. !! Kudos to the team..!!!” wrote fourth.
Meanwhile, earlier this month, another video showing a leopard being rescued from a well had taken the internet by storm. The incident took place in the Sambalpur district of Odisha and the rescue operation was carried out by the state fire brigade.
