Golden jackal rescued in Agra

IANS  |  Agra 

A female golden was found trapped in an eight-feet deep dry pool in the Cantonment area here on Thursday, following which it was rescued and released back into the wild.

The about six-year-old was spotted trying to escape from the pool, where a fountain has been installed. The officers on duty called up for help.

A three-member team rescued the later.

Kartick Satyanarayan, Wildlife SOS, said: "Finding a jackal in urban areas is uncommon but not rare. Habitat loss, rampant encroachment and human activities are forcing animals to move out of their natural habitat."
