A leopard injured after being trapped in a barbed wire fence at a forest in Madhya Pradesh’s Raisen district was rescued and brought to the Van Vihar National Park in Bhopal, an official said on Tuesday.
After being alerted, a team led by a veterinarian reached the spot near Bodra village in Raisen on Monday.
The leopard, about three years old, was severely injured, a public relations department official said, adding that the feline was rescued and put in a cage for starting its treatment.
The animal was brought to the Van Vihar in Bhopal and kept in a quarantine enclosure for recovery, the official added.
Madhya Pradesh is home to the largest number of leopards in the country.
