A three-year boy was rescued from the clutches of a leopardess by his mother and grandmother at Pimpalgaon Ketaki village in Dindori Taluka in the district, police said on Thursday.

The incident took place on last evening, they said.

“The child was playing in an agriculture field in the village when a leopardess came from nowhere and picked him up in her mouth. Hearing the cries of the boy, his mother and grandmother rushed to his rescue and fought with the feline,” a police officer from Dindori said.
