A couple of days ago, a mamma leopard gave birth to a healthy litter in a small hut located in a quaint village of Nashik.
In a recent heartwarming video that has surfaced on the internet, the mamma leopard is seen carrying her four cubs from the hut to the jungle the one-by-one.

The video captures the patience with which the mamma leopard is shifting her cubs back into their natural habitat as the little ones squeak and wander around the manmade hut.
The forest area is usually wet and cold during this season and mamma leopard wanted what was best for her cubs, a comforting dry place.
The forest department is currently surveying mamma leopard's moves to ensure that she doesn't run into any troubles with shifting her cubs to their natural habitat.
Leopards normally have the tendency to sleep in the day and hunt at night. But this leopardess does the opposite. She feeds in the night when her cubs are awake and hunts during the day time. She has been very gentle and she did not harm the forest department team or the villagers.
