Background history: A sugarcane farmer found Shivani as a tiny cub in his farm. The Forest Department roped in a team from Wildlife SOS to help rescue the cub and attempt a reunion with her mother if possible. After a failed attempt to do the same, it was finally decided to bring Shivani to MLRC as chances of her survival in the wild were bleak. Since then a decade has passed, and Shivani has grown up to be a healthy and majestic leopard. She spends most of her time lazing out in the sun atop her log platform enrichments, and mock-wrestling with her best friend Sitara.
