A terror-stricken male sambar rescued from inside the ordnance factory premises in Uttarakhand’s Dehradun
Had a dream release into its natural habitats,
Thanks to an adept team of forest officials led by Ravi Joshi.
The members, using ready wit and tact, tossed a cloth to cover the beast’s eyes to
Ease his nervousness, before throwing a net over the body.
Approaching it stealthily lest it panicked, the team carefully lifted the antler into a waiting mini truck.
They drove the sambar to a forested region and released it.
The leap to freedom reflected the beast’s renewed verve and craving for a new life in the wild.
