Rescued pangolin released to nature

An endangered species, pangolin which was found near Mandalay Railway Station was released to nature, according to Aphyu Yaung social rescue association.

The pangolin was found at midnight of 12 June and a man rescued it as it was attacked by dogs.

“It was attacked by dogs there so we rescued it. We have no idea what we can feed it in the next morning. It is tame so we asked help to Shwe Myittar association to come to catch it. And they are keen to release it back, so we did it,” said Aphyu Yaung social rescue association’s chair Daw Ei Theint Theint Swe.

In order to help it to live in its natural habitat, they released it on 13 June and it is still unknown where it came from, she said.

“Pangolin is in the list of endangered species. We released it to forest near a monastery in Pyin Oo Lwin. It’s length is over 1 taung,” she said. – Thit Taw/ZS
