June 4 (UPI) -- A group of villagers and wildlife officials came together in India to use a makeshift ladder to rescue a wild leopard that fell into a deep well.

Residents of the village near the Satpura Tiger Reserve in Madhya Pradesh contacted the Forest Service officials when they discovered a leopard had fallen into the 20-foot well and was unable to climb out.

Video recorded during the rescue shows villagers and Forest Service officials lowering a ladder made from bamboo and rope into the well.

The leopard was able to climb the ladder and run off back into the wild.
