With their habitat shrinking, the cats often stray into villages near forests.

EXPLAINER: The suspension of Arctic refuge drilling leases

  EXPLAINER: The suspension of Arctic refuge drilling leases ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Decades-long political and legal battles over drilling in America’s largest wildlife refuge took another turn when the Biden administration suspended oil and gas leases in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The move Tuesday was a blow to oil and gas proponents, who came as close as they ever have to starting a drilling program after the refuge was expanded 40 years ago to include the oil-rich coastal plain. The refuge was nearly opened to drilling in 1995 until President Clinton vetoed a bill sent to him by Congress. Here is a look at the administration's decision and how it got there. DIDN’T BIDEN DO THIS ALREADY?Sort of.

A 13-week-old leopard cub was found wandering around near a farming village in India. Thanks to the efforts of local wildlife services it was swiftly reunited with its mother. Over the years, the wild cats of Maharashtra, west-central India, have suitably adapted to habitat modification and have moved out of the shrinking forests, and into the dense sugarcane fields. Female leopards have found these fields a suitable shelter for giving birth and rearing their cubs . Locals have attempted to avoid any conflicts. But on Tuesday afternoon one of the cubs wandered away from its siblings and ventured into the area.

Rescuers from Wildlife SOS helped reunite a baby leopard with his mom after the cub wandered onto farmland near a village in India. It was curiosity that led a leopard cub to wander away from his two siblings while their mom hunted for dinner. But curiosity soon led to crisis — the 13-month-old cub eventually found himself all alone, in the middle of a village in Parner, India, and he couldn’t find his way back to his family.

The latest incident, which took place in Natun Gaon village in Tinsukia district on the morning of 23 May, has been reported only recently by wildlife officials.

"There was panic in the nearby villages when tea pluckers spotted the leopard in the tea garden. She fled when they raised an alarm," Dr Changmai, a vet with the Wildlife Trust of India, told the BBC's Geeta Pandey.

He said the plantation owner was led to the trench by the cub's crying. Since she was unable to come up on her own, the villagers rescued her and took her to a nearby house.

  Biden admin targets Trump rollbacks of species protections WASHINGTON (AP) — The Biden administration said Friday it is canceling or reviewing a host of actions by the Trump administration to roll back protections for endangered or threatened species, with a goal of strengthening a landmark law while addressing climate change.

The village is close to two small sanctuaries and is separated by a river from the Dibru-Soikhowa National Park, home to tigers, leopards and other wild animals.

Dr Changmai said the villagers were worried that the leopard would return to find the cub and insisted that we take her away and also set a trap to catch the mother, "but we convinced them that they must not interfere and leave the cub where they'd found her".

The cub was returned to the area "in a cardboard box, lightly sealed with tape to ensure it couldn't get out on its own but the mother would be able to tear it open".

"We checked on her again in the evening and gave her some more ORS. We set up camera traps to monitor the area. The villagers also kept an eye to ensure it wasn't attacked by dogs," Dr Changmai said.

"At night, less than 12 hours after they were separated, the mother found the box and retrieved her cub," he added.
