I'm glad they rescued the Leopard, but, sad the way that was used to get it out of the well, they used a live Rooster, sad.

Safe and happy back in the jungle, and likely with a full tummy of rooster!

Poor rooster. But that is, what predators do, eat smaller animals.

I think that is what you'd term being cruel to be kind.

Happy for the leopard, sad for the rooster.

Noted, tweeted, shared, tweeted. Some times in this world all the stars are in line and miracles happen. This was one of them.
