Heavy flooding near Sonprayag in Uttarakhand last July left hundreds of animals, stranded and dying.
- This mule, isolated on a rocky outcrop for three weeks, was rescued by Delhi based NGO’s Wildlife SOS and Friendicoes SECA.
The animal was tranquilized and secured so it would not move and, with the help of the pilot and copilot, loaded into a helicopter.
The groups deployed two relief teams consisting of veterinary doctors, para-vets with equine experience, farriers, and emergency drivers.
