Shivani was just 3 months old when she was discovered from a sugarcane field in Belha Village, Maharashtra, in 2009. Possibly separated from her mother, or orphaned, the tiny helpless cub was alone, starving and unprotected when we brought her into our care. The day of her rescue, this unlucky cub lost a paw to an unfortunate accident- forcing her to adapt to life with just three limbs. But, under the dedicated care of the staff at MLRC, Shivani’s strong, fighting spirit helped her become the independent, amazing animal she is today.
Help us give this wonderful leopard a chance at a better life.
