Injured Leopard Spotted

by on Sep.19, 2012, under Animals, Culture, Health, Nature

If you have stray cats in your neighborhood, you know that they don't respect boundaries. Your fence or garden wall is a minor obstruction. But this four-year-old leopard scaled a ten foot high wall, but then became impaled on a spike when it failed to clear a gate at the BEML factory in Mysore, India. The unfortunate creature was howling in pain when he was spotted by passersby as he struggled to free himself. A rescue operation was launched, and the leopard was tranquilized, allowing helpers under supervision of a veterinarian to lift it off the spike and bring it down in a net. Doctors at a nearby veterinary hospital stitched the wound caused by the spike and treated it with antibiotics. When he's sufficiently healed, he'll be rehabilitated to the forest, freeing him to return to Mysore.
