In recent months, the auto industry has had to close factories due to a number of reasons – missing parts, remember, natural disasterand even pandemic once in a lifetime. Now it can add to that list the threat of an invading leopard. ONE Mercedes-Benz factory in Pune, India, was forced to halt production for several hours when a stubborn wildcat strayed into the facility,
When a 3-year-old male leopard was discovered inside the factory’s production unit, it panicked workers, according to a rescue organization statement. Wildlife SOS detect CD driver. The site was closed for about six hours when the Wildlife SOS rapid response team from the Manikdoh Leopard Rescue Center and the State Forest Service safely relocated the curious cat.
The team’s veterinary officers Dr Nikhil Bangar and Dr Shubham Patil carried out the rescue operation, calming the cat and putting it in a wildlife van. The rescue lasted about four hours and Wildlife SOS reported that neither the creature nor the worker were injured. The leopard has been released back into the wild.
No one is sure how it got into the plant grounds, but Wildlife SOS says the forests in the surrounding area have one of the highest concentrations of leopards in the world. It is also rapidly deforesting. That human encroachment has also reduced the leopard’s natural prey source, so wildlife experts think it may be foraging.
We have another theory. We believe the cat is looking to set a record with Mercedes. When S 65 AMG debut, Mercedes declare it features the world’s first Surface Scan technology that detects road bumps and adjusts the suspension’s damping accordingly. The only problem with that statement: Nissan have technology about 30 years earlier in several mid-80s models, including Maxima and Japanese version of Infiniti M30, called – you guessed it – Leopard.
