Leopard Rescued After Getting Head Stuck in Vessel for 5 Hours in Dhule

In a dramatic rescue operation conducted by the forest department in Dhule district, a male leopard found itself trapped with its head stuck in a metal vessel for nearly five hours. Exhausted from its efforts to free itself, the leopard was successfully rescued thanks to the timely intervention of forest officials and veterinary experts.

The incident unfolded in Dhukshewad village, Sakri tehsil of Dhule, when the leopard ventured into a cowshed on Krushna Chaure’s farm in search of food and water. While attempting to drink water from a metal pot, the leopard inadvertently got its head trapped in the vessel, drawing the attention of local residents around 2 am.

Upon being alerted, the forest department swiftly responded to the scene under the guidance of Navin Kumar Singh, deputy conservator of forest, Dhule, and range forest officer Savita Sonawane. Alongside police officials and a veterinary officer, the team initiated a rescue operation to free the distressed animal.

Tranquillised by the veterinary officer and carefully monitored by forest officials, the leopard was transported to the department’s office for further assistance. After meticulous efforts, the leopard was finally liberated from its predicament and kept under observation for a brief period before being released back into the wild.

Savita Sonawane, range forest officer at Dhule Forest Department, expressed satisfaction with the successful outcome of the rescue operation, confirming the leopard’s health before its release into its natural habitat.

While this rescue showcased the effective coordination and efforts of the forest department, it also underscored the escalating human-wildlife conflict prevalent in Maharashtra. With increasing instances of leopards encroaching upon human settlements in search of sustenance, such incidents are anticipated to rise, necessitating proactive measures to mitigate human-wildlife conflicts in the region.

As Maharashtra grapples with the challenges of coexisting with its wildlife population, collaborative efforts between authorities and communities remain crucial to ensuring the safety and well-being of both humans and animals alike amidst their shared habitats.
