Lucky Leopard


OOTY, India - A lucky break for a leopard that fell down a well in southern India over the weekend.

The leopard became trapped at the bottom of the dry well in India's Tamil Nadu State.

Locals reported the situation to forestry officials.

After seven hours and the use of some ingenuity they managed to bring the big cat up.

They lowered a cage into the well.

Inside was an unfortunate chicken who had been chosen as bait.

The trick worked, and they were able to haul the cage and the cat up from the bottom of the well.

It was later released back into the wild.
