According to a delayed report, members of the A’chik Association for Protection of Environment (AAPE) were alerted by concerned residents who had discovered the injured fawn in the proximity of the under-construction Medical College site in the region.
The members immediately rushed to the spot and took the animal into their custody.
The District Forest Officer (DFO) of the Wildlife department was also informed and the animal was handed over to them.
