A female leopard, around 4yr old, was impaled by a spike when trying to jump over some railings at the BEML factory, near Mysore in Tamil Nadu.
She was trapped for almost 3 hours before rescuers were able to tranquilize her and get her down. Fortunately for her, despite a 3″ deep wound in her thigh, there were no serious internal injuries and after veterinary treatment she has been transferred to the Bannerghatta Biological Park in Bangalore.
[Leopards are such beautiful animals. I’m glad this one was saved !]
