That's one peeved kitty

An adult leopard glares up at rescue personnel, journalists and spectators after falling inside a water well on March 30 near the Kalipur neighborhood of Guwahati, India.

The leopard is the second of its kind to be rescued in the area this week, highlighting the ongoing conflict between native wildlife and rapid human encroachment on already shrinking habitats.
