“Wonder what made the rescue team think the leopard needed rescuing? They are after all excellent climbers and presumably quite capable of climbing down also,” wrote a Twitter user. They received a reply from Kaswan. “In middle of human habitat. With 2000 people surrounding it. At least they know their job well. They do it 364 days. For 30 years. Btw now animal is safe in its natural habitat. Otherwise chances were less,” he answered.
“Leopard be like- "chaand pe hai apun,” joked another. “Ohh God,” posted another. “OMG!” expressed a third.
