Saving a lioness from an Indian village well


This video says about itself:

4 November 2014

A critically endangered Asiatic lion has been rescued from a 60ft well after it slipped in during the night.

Dramatic footage shows villagers in remote Gujarat – where some of the only remaining wild prides of the lion species exist – hauling the creature to safety.

The distressed eight-year-old lion can be heard roaring as it stands on a small ledge at the side of the well – which was nearly full with water.

Using some rope tied around the lion’s midriff, about which it is unclear who secured it around the animal, the group of villagers manage to hoist the lion out of the well.
