Four jackal pups rescued in Wokha
Wokha, April 12 (EMN): Four puppy jackals were rescued from the Doyang dam area (Tzuza River) by some individuals from Pangti village.
The pups were later handed over to the Forest department officials.
The rescuers informed that it was the “right intervention” as the mother had abandoned the pups, which could be due to some animal attack as the mother Jackal ‘didn’t show up’.
It was informed that they had taken care of the pups for more than two weeks ‘as they were too young.’
The rescuers had found the jackals abandoned by the mother in an old burrow of a porcupine in the last week of March.
The jackals were handed over to Forest department officials in a short interaction with Sungro Government High School class 8 and 9 students, where they were told about the importance of saving wildlife and forest for ecological coexistence.
The Forest department informed that the rescued jackals were three females and one male, and they would be taken care at Nagaland Zoological Park in Dimapur.
