In a similar incident, a leopard cub entered the Castle Kanota Heritage Hotel in Jaipur, Rajasthan, on January 18. Tourists staying at the hotel evacuated the property and secured the door from the outside.

The hotel staff, local authorities and wildlife rescue teams worked for more than two hours to tranquilise the wild animal.

The incident happened when dogs in the hotel began barking. Despite the staff's attempts to calm the dogs, they remained agitated. A tourist then spotted the leopard cub and informed the hotel staff, following which the hotel owner alerted the Forest Department team.
