The leopard was chasing the cat to prey upon when the felines fell into a well. However, after realizing the situation, the leopard decided to leave its intended prey alone.
At a point, the cat even took shelter under the leopard's body to escape slipping in the water.
"Both of them were in the well and leopard didn't prey on the cat, although it was chasing the cat on land, however, when they fell into the well, they seemed like supporting each other," said Deputy Conservator of Forests, West Nashik Division, Pankaj Garg.
Both the animals were later rescued from the well and released into the wild.
