Arunachal Pradesh: 3 Great Indian Civet cubs rescued, handed over to Zoological Park, Itanagar

Pasighat: Three great Indian Civet were handed over to Itanagar Zoological Park on December 18 by a young leader from Pasighat, Mongol Yomso. He contested the Lok Sabha elections in the last Parliamentary election.

A team of Yomso's workers found the three Civets near Ayeng village under Mebo Sub-Division around four months ago. Since then, Yomso has been raising the Civet cubs by feeding them meat and milk.

When he saw the Civets growing up healthy, Yomso informed the Divisional Forest Officer of D. Ering Wildlife Sanctuary Division, Pasighat, Tasang Taga. He wanted the Civets to be released in a sanctuary. However, Yomso was worried if the other wild animals kill the civets. Therefore, he requested Taga to release the civets in a safer place. Taga further contacted the Regional Forest Officer (RFO) of Itanagar Zoological Park. After getting permission from Principal Chief Conservator of Forest and Wildlife, Govt. of Arunachal Pradesh, Itanagar to transport animals via Assam, Yomso along with three civets left for Itanagar Zoological Park on Friday.

Yomso has appealed to the people, especially the Tani clan communities to stop hunting and love the wild animals too. He has urged everyone to change themselves with the passing of time so that these wildlife could be also saved and protected for greater environmental balance.

On the other hand, Yomso's kindness was appreciated by DFO Taga. He said Yomso's kindness will inspire many others, who must come forward to save the wildlife. State Board for Wildlife Member, M. Tayeng admired the decision taken by Yomso to hand over the is Civets to wildlife officials. He said this move by Yomso makes him the leader of wildlife, the guardian of voiceless animals, whose number is rapidly decreasing due to hunting and poaching.
