India | Two orphaned leopard cubs rehabilitated at Sanjay Gandhi NP
Over the past six months, Mumbai’s Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP) has nurtured two frail leopard cubs into healthy, active big cats.
In November, farmers in a sugarcane field in Nandgaon village, Ahmednagar, found the cubs — a male and a female. After three failed attempts over four days by forest department officials to find their mother, their health began deteriorating. The month-old old cubs were then brought to SGNP’s leopard rescue centre in Borivli on December 19, where they were kept in isolation.
