Sometimes curiosity kills the cat, but sometimes it just gets the cat’s head stuck in a steel pot.

On Wednesday, a leopard—usually a stealthy creature—got thirsty, and went looking for water in the village of Sadulkhera, in India’s western Rajsamand district. There, NDTV reports, he got his head stuck in a pot.

Villagers said they became aware of the leopard—usually a stealthy creature—as he ran around trying to get the pot off his head. Villagers speculated that the leopard had come from the Kumbhalgarh sanctuary, 12 miles away.

Eventually, forest officials arrived to tranquilize the creature and remove the pot.

“The male leopard is about three years old. He is being kept under observation. He has been checked by vets and seems to be fine,” District Forest Officer of the Udaipur range, Kapil Sharma, told NDTV. “He will be released in the forest later.”
