India is a beautiful country, filled with abundant natural resources, ancient culture, and a stunning variety of wildlife, including elephants, tigers, leopards, and bears. Amazingly, many of these animal species have been living alongside human communities for thousands of years! However, when the worlds of humans and animals collide, like in this video, things don’t always end well. Thankfully, there are groups like Wildlife SOS that exist save the day!
The leopard in this video was trapped in a 30-foot well with no hope of getting out. Luckily, the Wildlife SOS team is very experienced with carrying out wildlife rescues and managed to free this majestic animal in seemingly no time at all!
Wildlife SOS is an amazing organization that is dedicated to helping preserve, conserve and protect India’s wildlife. Founded in 1955, this group has spent the last 60 years helping animals and humans to coexist, through research, rescue, and education. Thanks to their intervention, animals like the leopard in this video are able to be saved and released back into the wild – while the villagers, also featured here, are able to get the use of their well back.
