When people who had gathered near the well peeped in, they saw a leopard inside and informed the Forest Department officials.

Struggle

The officials from Shirva, Belman and Udupi, who visited the spot, could not rescue the leopard. They, however, later lowered a cage with a hen in it.


As there was little water in the well, the leopard was resting in a small, tunnel-like space inside the well.
