Pune: At approximately 10:30 AM on Saturday (July 6), travelers in Dive Ghat, Pune had a startling encounter with a leopard. The sighting prompted warnings from the villagers of Wadki to be vigilant while traveling through the area.

For the past two days, there had been several reports of a leopard sighting, although no photographic or video evidence had surfaced. Nonetheless, the villagers remained cautious.

This morning, as the leopard descended the mountain and disappeared into the trees, it was spotted by the residents of Wadki at the third turn from Wadki on the descent from Saswad.

The leopard's crossing of the road caused panic among travelers, with two motorcyclists narrowly escaping. Pravin Modak reported capturing the incident on his mobile phone.

Given the onset of the rainy season and the perceived lower risk for tourism, many tourists, including families with children, visit the area's waterfalls and natural beauty.

Tourists are often absorbed in taking selfies, and it is crucial for them to remain cautious while enjoying their trips. Villagers Shivaji Kalane and Akshay Khutwad advised tourists to avoid being alone and to stay in groups for safety.
