A tiger cub, which had fallen into an open well in a village near here in Madhya Pradesh two days ago, was rescued on Tuesday, said an official.
After being brought out of the well, the one-year-old cub is being shifted to Mukundpur tiger safari in Rewa district, the official said.
The cub fell into the well located in an agricultural field at Pipariya village under the Barhi forest area on Sunday, Katni Superintendent of Police (SP) Lalit Shakyawar said.
Villagers came to know about the incident on Monday, but they did not inform authorities about it, he said.
The authorities swung into action after they got information on Tuesday, Shakyawar said.
The SP said a team of forest, police and revenue departments launched a rescue operation on Tuesday morning and brought the cub safely out of the well, which did not have much water, at around 4 pm.
