He then informed the forest department about it, and they contacted the Manikdoh Leopard Rescue Centre, run by the nonprofit animal advocacy organization, Wildlife SOS.A three member rescue team led by Wildlife SOS Dr Ajay Deshmukh along with six forest department officials rushed to the spot and rescued the animal with the help of the villagers. The animal successfully rescued from an extremely dangerous, near-death situation.
