Three leopard cubs reunited with mother by Forest Officials

Mysuru, May 23 (UNI) The Karnataka Forest Department personnel have reunited three Leopard cubs with their mother, thus displaying their concern for wildlife conservation and protection.
The three cubs, born about five days back, were found in the sugarcane field of Honnappa at Kodanahalli in the taluk on May 17. The villagers had put the cubs in a tray and informed the Forest Department personnel.
Range Forest Officer (RFO) MK Devaraju and Deputy Range Forest Officer (DRFO) Malegowda, who rescued the cubs, decided to leave them at the spot as they were just a couple of days old and waited for the mother to take them back.
Though there were instances of Forest staff providing foster care to many cubs earlier, the Forest officials decided to reunite the cubs with their mother.
Following instructions from Chief Conservator of Forests (CCF) T Heeralal, Deputy Conservators of Forests (DCFs) Alexander and Dr KC Prashanth Kumar, the Forest staff began to keep a hawk eye vigil on the surroundings of the spot, where the cubs were found and found the mother leopard searching for its cubs.
The Forest staff immediately brought it to the notice of their higher officials, left the leopard cubs at the spot where they were found and began to observe them by hiding at a distance.
Though it began to rain, the Forest staff kept their vigil over the leopard cubs.
When the Forest staff arrived the Saturday morning to the spot, they found the pug marks of the mother leopard and her cubs from the spot to the forest and the Forest staff were confirmed that the mother had taken back her cubs.
