Nilgai injured in mishap, undergoes treatment

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

A nilgai is undergoing treatment here after being grievously injured by a speeding motorbike near Manav Rachna University in Faridabad.

Wildlife SOS, that rescued the adult female nilgai, said the animal suffered head injuries and was left with a broken limb and horn due to the accident that happened yesterday morning.



"Traumatized by the accident and under immense pain, the nilgai was unable to move and had to be carefully lifted and transferred into an ambulance," the wildlife body said in a statement.

The Nilgai or Blue bull, protected under Schedule III of the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972, is the largest Asian antelope and is endemic to the Indian subcontinent.

"It is becoming increasingly common to find nilgais wandering into urban areas from nearby forests, mainly due to the blurring of boundaries between cities and forests with increasing habitat encroachment," Geeta Seshamani of Wildlife SOS said.

The nilgai is currently under treatment and observation and will be released back into its natural habitat upon complete recovery, Seshamani said.
