After three-day ordeal, two jackals rescued from deep well in Tamil NaduDecember 27th, 2007 - 8:08 pm ICT by admin
Krishnagiri (TN), Dec 27 (ANI): Two silver striped jackals were rescued from a 60-foot deep well in Tamil Nadus Krishnagiri District after a three-day long tribulation.
The jackals that had strayed into the Thanampatti village from the nearby forest fell into the well.
Due to the wells depth, it was impossible for the jackals to escape on their own.
On noticing the jackals in trouble, the villagers informed the forest officials. Soon a team of five forest officials reached the spot.
After a struggle for three days, the forest personnel were successful in bringing the jackals out of the well safely.
It was a tough task because they were animals and could not recognise that humans are there to rescue them. But then we successfully rescued the jackals. They were later released into the forest,” said Madheswaran, forest range officer, Krishnagiri District.
Jackals are found in the wilds of Africa and Asia. (ANI)
