Leopard cub learns to walk again after being paralysed in road accident

This is the heartwarming moment a seven-month-old leopard cub, which was paralysed after accident learns to walk again. The female cub was hit by a speeding vehicle near Igatpuri located in Nashik district, Maharashtra earlier this month. The critically injured animal was rescued by the Forest Department and later transferred to the Manikdoh Leopard Rescue Center, run by Wildlife SOS in Junnar, near Pune. After the accident left the young cub paralyzed, her chances of recovery appeared bleak. X-rays revealed spinal injuries which had caused complete limb paralysis. But as the leopard was young, her vets felt that with proper treatment she would be able to walk again. The leopard was ready to surprise the experts with her sheer determination to get back on her feet again too. Senior Wildlife SOS Veterinarian Dr Ajay Deshmukh, said: “We are providing regular physiotherapy comprising of stretching exercises, massages and assisted walks. She is getting stronger each day and we have observed signs of movement in her limbs.” Ajit Shinde, Range Forest Officer, Junnar said, “We have observed that the leopard is responding well to the physiotherapy sessions and I am grateful to the hard work put in by the Wildlife SOS team.” In recent years, economic growth and rapid infrastructural development in India have shrunk the habitat of wildlife exposing them to new dangers like road accidents.

Panicked passengers grab their belongings in an attempt to leave the darkened cabin of an Indonesia Lion Air flight that skidded off the runway last Saturday in recently emerged footage.

Sengdia Sastra, the filmer, said: "We rushed out as the cabin was dark and smelled of smoke. At that time the plane had stopped after sliding off the runway."

Heart-stopping moment T-boned car spins into lamppost in Stockport

Shocking footage has emerged of a large lorry going through a red light at a junction and smashing into a hatchback in Stockport, Greater Manchester, on Wednesday (February 20). In dash-cam video caught from a vehicle behind the hatchback, on the Higher Hillgate-Longshut Lane junction, a green light is showing and the traffic advances. However, from the left-hand side, a heavy goods vehicle can be seen driving without slowing down and approaching the traffic lights. As the hatchback reaches the centre of the junction, it gets T-boned by the HGV, sending it flying across the road, spinning it nearly 180 degrees. It eventually comes to a halt but not before hitting a lamppost, which is left wobbling. The driver of the Ford Fiesta - a 59-year-old lady - was taken to hospital with minor injuries after being "bruised from the seat belt." Neil Rigby, who filmed the incident on his dash-cam, said: "I was following the lady and could see what was about to happen, hence the cry in the video and it was like slow-motion." Rigby later said: "She was conscious and not in any immediate danger and so we left her sat in the car until the ambulance arrived. "The truck driver had pulled his vehicle over to the side of the road and was very remorseful. "He admitted it was his fault and said he just didn't see the lights. "The lady's side airbags were deployed and the car was written off."

Hornets vacuumed out of HUGE nest found in tree trunk

A huge hornet's nest was found in a tree trunk in Philadelphia and was removed after the bugs were sucked out with a vacuum. Bret Davis, who filmed the video, claimed the large nest was a threat to the homeowner's children and needed to be removed. The female foragers were sucked into a vacuum containing water mixed with dish soap to kill the insects. The queens were released along with the males. Says Davis: "I am a nurse and stone mason contractor who enjoys performing wasp nest removals on the side. This particular wasp nest was a vespa crabro (European hornet) nest inside of a standing dead white oak tree. "After the majority of the foragers were removed, I cut the tree open carefully to expose the hive without damaging its structures. The nest was removed and brought back to my home where I extracted the new queens and males for release."
