A team of forest men rescued an injured deer fawn from Shrihari Vela area on the outskirts of the city on Saturday night. The fawn stayed in the human habitation from the nearby zudpi jungle.
Upon getting information, Vijay Gangawane, Range Forest Officer (rescue), Seminary Hills, sent forest staff to the spot for rescuing the fawn that was injured when entangled in a barbed wire fencing. He said the shocked wild animal was brought to the transit treatment centre, Seminary Hills. Dr Sayyad Bilal is treating the animal and it is now out of danger.
Meanwhile, Ram Sharma, a resident of the village, informed that the fawn got entangled at 10 am. However, the residents saw it around 5.30 pm after reaching home from work. Lakhan Sharma freed the deer and took it to his home for providing first aid.
It took time for informing the forest officers as they had no telephone numbers. The officers got information through some pressmen.
