Baby leopard wanders into Indian village
A leopard cub has become the talk of the town in northern India after appearing out of nowhere in the early morning and wandering onto a family's doorstep. Nobody knows if the mother of the one-month-old cub abandoned her baby or whether she was killed or lost.
After receiving information that villagers had spotted a cub, Deputy Ranger of India's Forest Department Ram Gopal Chauhan arrived at the village of Bijnor.
"When we reached the site, we saw it was a leopard cub, one-month-old", he said. "To ensure his safety we took the cub to our station, where we fed it some milk. Then we took it for a medical check-up."
Ranger Chauhan and his team hope the cub will be reclaimed by its mother, if she is still alive.
