The forest personnel had lowered the branches of a tree nearby so that the  poor leopard  could climb  on it on Sunday itself. But the animal refused to climb up the branches. Finally, on Tuesday morning the fire service personnel arrived at the spot after which  a cage  was lowered into the well.   The leopard which initially did not enter the cage, later entered it as soon as the cage  was lowered into the water. Diver Manjunath Naik’s services were used to immediately close the door of the cage.

The leopard has been shifted to a sanctuary by the forest officials.
