factory of mercedes benz In Chakan, near Pune, Maharashtra, India, an unexpected visitor was found last week. A male Indian leopard attacked the premises of a car brand and scared the employees. With the chaos created by the animal’s appearance, workers interrupted production and called rescue.
The leopard is between two and three years old and was roaming among the factory facilities spread over an area of 100 acres or about 40 hectares. “Maharashtra has the highest density of wild leopards, which often brings them to the crossroads with humans. Large-scale habitat loss has forced wildlife to venture into human-dominated areas repeatedly,” said Wildlife SOS, responsible for saving the animal.
The feline, who was also distressed, was successfully rescued in a four-hour operation involving six people, carried out by Wildlife SOS, an organization specializing in the rescue of wild animals, and the Chakan Forest Department.
To be able to move the animal, the rescue team used a tranquilizer and took it for medical evaluation. After a thorough medical examination, the cat was found fit and later released back into the wild.
