A thirsty Indian leopard in the northern Indian state of Rajasthan was apparently just trying to get a drink of water when he got his head stuck in a pot. As we all know, cats love to jam their heads into impossibly small openings. Sometimes, curiosity kills the cat. Other times, curiosity leaves the cat wandering around helplessly with a pot on his head, just like in the cartoons. If anyone ever disputes the scarcity of fresh water and its impact on India, just have them watch this video. No need for fancy geopolitical statistics and graphs depicting changes in weather and climate! Just a good old video of a leopard with his head stuck in a pot, because drought.

After five hours of villagers getting the closest they'll ever (safely) be to a wild leopard, it was tranquilized by wildlife officials, who successfully sawed the pot from his head. They then released him back into the wild, where he woke up feeling groggy (and still probably thirsty) with no memory of the past several hours. Officials made no statement as to whether they drew a penis on its head.
