The wild cat, desperately in search of water, got its head stuck in a metal pot where it thought it could get some water from.
A male leopard in a village in the northern Indian state of Rajasthan, repprtedly looking for water put his head inside a pot and was unable to bring his head back out.
He was stuck there for five hours until villagers were able to help. The frightened animal who couldn't see after getting its head stuck in the pot wandered around the village as residents who didn't know what to do just took pictures.
Wildlife officials were eventually called and they tranquilised the leopard and sawed the pot off its head.
