Rampant habitat loss has forced wildlife to frequently venture into human-controlled areas,” said WildiLife SOS, which is responsible for animal rescue.

The cats, who were also distressed, were successfully rescued in a four-hour operation involving six people, carried out by WildiLife SOS, a wildlife rescue organization, and the Chakan Forest Department.
