Deer Escapes From Assam State Zoo

GUWAHATI: On Monday, a deer broke out from the Assam State Zoo and Botanical Garden in Guwahati.
The deer was reportedly discovered taking refuge inside the grounds of a home in the Jonali Path neighbourhood of Guwahati. The deer may have escaped from the zoo through a hole in a wall.
The vice president of Chiriyakhana Suraksha Mancha stated to the media, "For several days, we have been working on protecting the zoo animals. A friend called me this morning to tell me that a deer had escaped from the zoo and was hiding out in a house's backyard. I quickly notified the zoo authorities of this information, and they requested a photo be sent.”
“When I emailed them the photo, they assured me there was no need for concern and advised me to simply open the gate so he could leave. When 10 to 12 deer roamed the area in search of food, they said that it was normal. True, there are a number of deer that can be seen wandering around close to the zoo, but no efforts are being made by the zoo authorities to repair the walls.”
The deer may easily leave the zoo because the walls are shattered and the ceilings are too low, he continued.
The largest of its kind in the North East region, the Assam State Zoo and Botanical Garden (often referred to as Guwahati Zoo) is located on 432 acres (175 hectares). The zoo is situated in Guwahati, within Hengrabari Reserved Forest.
Over 113 different animal and bird species from all over the world are represented by the zoo's 895 resident animals, birds, and reptiles.
