Recently farmers discovered a leopard cub while harvesting sugarcane in Maharashtra. This two-day-old cub still had an umbilical cord attached to him and had gotten separated from his mother after she gave birth.

Fortunately, they did not take matters into their own hands and instead called the Forest Department and Animal Rescue India, who were able to reunite him with his mother the same evening! The rescue carefully placed hidden 360-degree cameras around the surrounding fields near the cub. Surprisingly, it only took about an hour for his mother to pass by and take her cub back into her care.

Sugarcane fields provide better shelter and protection, so very often, female leopards leave their young in the sugar fields.

This was another wonderful reunion, thanks to Animal Rescue India!
