Divya Bhaskar (Briefly translated from Gujarati)
A Farmer Harijan Aebha Dana yesterday informed forest department about an ailing lioness fallen into open-well in his farm at Gundaran village near Talala in Gir West. Lioness had hunted an animal and after feeding on it went to open-well for drinking water. The well had no parapet protection. Hence it accidentally fell in to the well.
The well was dry and 20 feet deep. Hence forest rescue team saved this 4-4.5 year old cat. Instant hard work and efforts of RFO Chauhan, ACF Katara and Dr. Hirpara are appreciated.
Kishore Kotecha’s comments: Gir forest staff and particularly rescue team headed by Veterinary doctor is doing excellent job. Anytime. Always. My congratulations to them and please keep it up.
