 An incident took place today morning In the fields of Nere Dattawadi, near Pune City wherein at around 8:30 am, amidst the rustling sugarcane, a distressed leapord cub was discovered in a pitiable state. It was found by local farmer Shantaram Jadhav while tending to his fields.

The farmers wasted no time in alerting the forest department about the distressed pup. Swift action was taken, and the cub is now under the care of authorities.

For years, Nere Dattawadi has been a known habitat for leopards. Despite being captured multiple times on CCTV cameras prowling and hunting in the vicinity, these elusive creatures continue to evade capture by the forest department. This has left villagers anxious and fearful, especially during agricultural activities when encounters with leopards are not uncommon.

Sugarcane cultivation thrives in this region, making it a prime habitat for leopard cubs. The presence of both male and female leopards adds to the villagers’ apprehension while working in the fields.

In response to these concerns, local residents including Rahul Jadhav, Laxman Jadhav, Swapnil Gaikwad, Balasaheb Jadhav, Datta Jadhav, and Tejas Jadhav have called upon the forest department to take decisive action. They demand the installation of cages in the vicinity to capture and permanently relocate the leopards, ensuring the safety and peace of mind of the community.
