Snarling wild leopard rescued from welll

This is the dramatic moment a very angry leopard was hauled from the bottom of a village well in southern India on Friday. The big cat is thought to have fallen into the water source as it tried to flee the village in Udupi District with a dog in its mouth. Villagers were woken in the middle of the night by the sound of a dog barking from the bottom of the well. When they got to the well, they found the dog and the leopard both stuck 15-20 feet below. Realising the leopard must have dropped the dog as it fell into the water source, villagers lost no time in pulling the canine to safety with the help of a rope and a basket. Forest Department staff arrived at around 9am local time to attempt the much more dangerous task of rescuing the leopard, which was by now distressed and angry. They lowered a cage into the well with four ropes and eventually managed to goad the snarling cat inside. The cage was then slowly raised from the well. The entire rescue operation took around 90 minutes. "It was a male leopard about five or six years old. It was very healthy,” said Sharath Shetty from the Forest Department. The leopard will be relocated.

Hero Thai cave rescuer has to be saved after getting washed away in flood

This is the astonishing moment a hero cave diver had to be rescued himself after taking a wrong turn and being washed away in a flood. Danish man Claus Rasmussen, 45, who took part in the cave rescue of 13 trapped youngsters last month, and Singaporean Seetoh Yiyu, 37, were driving to Phuket in the south of Thailand when their car's GPS went haywire. The pair got lost down a remote country road in Thung Yai district, Nakhon Si Thammarat, before a flash flood swept them into a canal. Both men had to climb onto the roof of the white pick-up truck which was seen floating downstream in the fast-flowing water. They were stranded on the roof for several hours as they waited desperately for help to arrive. Rescue workers arrived and hauled the men to safety in a boat before using a rope to drag their stricken vehicle to safety just after nightfall at around 8pm. Claus, who helped British divers during the cave rescue of the young football team, told officials that he had been giving a scuba diving teaching course in the area before heading home.

Live rat found with soya bean plant growing from body

An Indian farmer got the fright of his life recently when checking his soya bean crop - one of the plants was growing from the body of a live rat. The extraordinary scene was captured on video by farmer Datar Singh in Ratlam District in Madhya Pradesh. According to Singh, the plant must have somehow been sown into an open wound of the rodent and then germinated there. When Singh told local residents what he'd found, they rushed back to the field and brought the remarkable rat to the village for others to see. Incredibly, Singh says he sowed soya beans 40 days before discovering the rat, which means the injured rodent had survived all that time with the plant growing from its body.
