Mumbai: Indian kite rescued by activists near Panvel | Mumbai News


NAVI MUMBAI: A dehydrated Indian kite was rescued from Chirle village, near Panvel city, on Thursday by animal activists.
After informing the local state forest officials, the kite was later released near the Karnala bird sanctuary.
“Some of the local villagers had first noticed the juvenile Indian kite lying on the ground. It was weak and dehydrated. I informed the forest officials and later took the bird of prey to my house for further treatment,” said activist Anand Madhavi of Vanyajeev Nisarga Savrakshan Sanstha (VNSS) NGO.
Madhavi added that due to lack of rains of late, the dry spell in the region may have made the kite search various places for water, eventually becoming dehydrated.
“However, once we administered from vitamins and gave water to the kite, it soon became stronger and was fit to fly again. Hence, in the presence of the forest officials, we later released the bird near the Karnala bird sanctuary,” said Madhavi.
Citizens are requested to call the Maharashtra forest helpline number 1926 if they notice any wild animal or bird in distress.
