Recently, a four-month-old leopard cub was found lying on the side of a village road. He likely got separated from his mother and was in need of medical attention. Fortunately, the Forest Department and a rescue team from the village called Wildlife SOS in to help. They brought him to the Wildlife SOS​ Leopard Rescue Centre, where they treated an internal infection and helped him recover. leopard rescue

Like many animals, leopard cubs rely on their mothers to learn survival instincts until a certain age. Fortunately, residents of the village where the cub was found, saw a mother leopard several times. Thus, once the cub was healthy again, they were able to release him back into the wild to be with his mother.

In response to this rescue, Kartick Satyanarayan, Co-founder and CEO of Wildlife SOS, said “We thank the Forest Department and the village rescue team for taking quick action. Our veterinary team was closely monitoring his condition and carried out intensive treatment. It is reassuring to see the leopard cub return to its natural habitat, where it can thrive.
