Army saves 2 leopard cubs barely 15-days-old!

The Indian Army’s valour on the battlefield is well known. But the Army has always cherished the rich flora and fauna of the country and played a pivotal role towards environment protection and conservation of wildlife as well.
On 20 May 2010, the Jawans of Binnaguri Cantonment in North Bengal set a very fine example by saving the lives of two abandoned leopard cubs found near their training area.  The cubs barely 15 days old were immediately examined by an army vet doctor. They were then handed over to Mr RC Roy, Range Officer, Forest Conservation Department by Maj Gen RK Rana, General Officer Commanding, Kripan Division.
The forest officials were highly appreciative of the efforts of the Army and thanked the General Officer for the sensitivity shown towards conservation of wildlife.
