A small Indian civet was spotted on the outskirts of the city at Padoda near Waluji Industrial Area in Aurangabad, Maharashtra. The animal was sighted for the first time in many years after it was found stuck inside a well. Wildlife experts Manoj Gaikwad and Kunal Banswal along with a rescue team worked together towards rescuing the animal.
While speaking to The Times of India, Wildlife experts Manoj Gaikwad and Kunal Banswal stated that they received a call from villagers about a ‘cat-like’ animal spotted near a well on their farm. The villagers had been alert as they were unaware of the animal they spotted.
On reaching the spot, the wildlife experts realized that the ‘cat-like’ looking animal was an Indian civet, which is rarely seen in the wild. The animal had fallen into the well and was stuck there. The experts immediately called the rescue team to help and rescue the animal trapped in the well.
Soon after the rescue team arrived at the spot, they tried to get the animal out using a small cage. But, the animal clanged onto a crack on the well’s wall. The rescue team later tried to use a fishing net to rescue the animals, but that too was unsuccessful.
The rescuers later entered the well using a rope and tried to bring the animal out. After various attempts, they were successful in bringing the Indian civet out of the well. After being rescued, the animal was taken to the examination centre, to check if it had any injury from the incident.
According to the honorary wildlife warden of Aurangabad, Kishor Pathak, he stated that the Indian civet was kept under observation for 24 hours and was then released back into its natural habitat.
