The leopard, possibly from the Aravalli hills, was spotted leaping onto a high wall of a farm house by a local guard. The leopard in an attempt to scale the 15-foot wall got impaled on the metal spikes on the wall and was trapped for a long time.

The police contacted the Wildlife SOS helpline and a team of rescue members arrived at the location. The Wildlife SOS arranged a leopard transport cage and the team worked hard to tranquilize it and transport it to the safety of the veterinary hospital in the Delhi Zoo.
