The leopard can be a feared animal amongst the villagers in India, but in the case of this big cat, compassion overruled fright after it was found drowning in a well 60 feet deep. The tense rescue, which happened in the Maharashtra village of Pimpalgaon Siddhanath, took an astounding three hours in length.

Definitely a few tense moments in that video. You can almost see the look of desperation in that leopard – frantic to get on dry land once again.
