Things, got serious when the guests stumbled upon a bear who came uninvited and ended up injuring a few others. Many tired to chase the large animal following which the panicked bear, in an attempt to escape, fell into a 45-foot deep dry well.

After assessing the situation and sedating the distressed animal, the departments sent a team of trackers down the well. They climbed down with the help of a giant makeshift ladder to bring out the bear.

"We had to tie together three large ladders so that the trackers could reach all the way to the bottom of the well. They carefully placed the sedated bear into a safety net for an easy and safe extraction,” said M. Swaminathan, a senior biologist associated with the rescue mission.

He further added that the rescue mission took about 20 hours and finally they were successful in extracting the bear.
