So, here goes the story of a leopard who just had a bad day:

A leopard went in search of water and the search turned into a nightmare when its head got stuck in a metal pot in Rajsamand district of Rajasthan. The unfortunate leopard wandered around, finding it hard to get rid of the vessel.

Bystanders took photographs and filmed the struggling beast until local forestry commission arrived and shot it with a tranquilizer dart.

District Forest Officer Kapil Chandrawal told the Indian Tribune, “The sub-adult panther, aged about 3 years, wiggled a lot and made efforts to get his head out but all attempts failed. On receiving information by locals, our team reached the place and shifted him to an enclosure where it was tranquilized and his head was freed. After the leopard is fully recovered, he will be set free in a dense forest area.”
