A leopard which found itself trapped in a dry well in a residential area in Assam’s capital Guwahati was rescued after a two-hour operation by local forest officials.

On Wednesday, the female leopard fell into a dry well, nearly 30 feet deep, straying into a residential area in Guwahati’s Gokulnagar. It was filmed angrily growling at cameras as officials and police officers figured out a way to rescue it from the well. Locals too assisted in the operation, reported Assam Tribune.

Forest department officials tranquilised the big cat and hoisted the animal to safety. Video of the rescue operation showed Dr Bijoy Gogoi, a vet with the forest department, tranquilising the animal and descending down the dry well with the help of a ladder and a harness. The sedated leopard was then lifted out of the well while tied to a rope. It took nearly two hours for the risky rescue, reported Hindustan Times.

As officials carried the tranquilised leopard in a cage, a crowd gathered around to see the sight.

The feline was taken to the state zoo. Medical examination conducted on the leopard detected no injuries, said Assam Tribune.

This is the second such incident of human-animal conflict in the northeast state of Assam. Earlier in December, an angry mob in Dibrugarh hunted and ate a leopard that had killed an elderly woman after straying into a village from a forest. Its paw was the only body part left after the villagers consumed it.
