Kittens are not kittens”
A man who rescued a pair of abandoned kittens on his property brought them inside his home and only later discovered they were actually leopard cubs.
Kiran Giri, a farmer from Bajrikheda Village, discovered the baby felines in his field and brought them inside because he thought they were abandoned kittens suffering from the recent cold weather.
The felines started to recover from the cold after three days inside his house, and he grew suspicious when they appeared to be growling instead of meowing.
The farmer showed the animals to neighbors, who confirmed they were leopard cubs.
Giri notified local police, who in turn contacted the Forest Department. The department confirmed they were leopard cubs, a male and a female.
The cubs were taken to the Van Vihar rescue center.
