In the wake of the novel coronavirus lockdown, a leopardess was spotted in a village in Rajasthan as it found an abandoned house and occupied it for her three cubs. The incident occurred in the Tantol village of the Rajsamand district while officials concerned have installed CCTV cameras in the area to monitor the scenario.
Parveen Kaswan of the Indian Forest Service tweeted a 21-second CCTV footage of the leopardess roaming outside the abandoned house that appears to be situated in the midst of a deserted fort.
In his caption for the post, Kaswan added that the leopardess looks for food throughout the day and returns to the house at night.
“While everybody was inside, the mother #leopard found an unused house and started raising her three cubs. In Tantol village of Rajsamand. Mother is coming in night and in daytime, she goes for food. Cubs are doing fine. So now, department has put staff and cameras to monitor things,” Parveen Kaswan said in the caption of his post.
