New Delhi: A leopard landed in a life threatening situation today after its head got stuck in a steel pot. The incident, which happened in Rajsamand district of Rajasthan, made the poor animal helpless and went viral at the same time.  

As per reports, the animal was thirsty and had reached the area to drink water. But unfortunately, while it was trying to drink water from the steel pot, its head got stuck in it.  

People living nearby gathered to witness the unusual incident and recorded it on their phones, making it a buzzing topic.
