A two-year-old female Pangolin (anteater) that was spotted near Sanganur canal here was rescued by two persons on Thursday and was later brought to the Coimbatore Corporation Zoo at VOC Park. Following information, the Conservator of Forests, Coimbatore Circle, R. Kannan and District Forest Officer, I. Anwardeen deputed a team led by Forest Veterinarian, N.S. Manoharan.

“Not knowing what the animal is and its behavioural pattern, the local residents have inflicted injuries on it,” Mr. Manoharan said.

The Pangolin was given first aid at the zoo.After ensuring its complete healing, the animal would be released into wilderness, he said.
