New Delhi gets quarantine facility for wild animals

Leopards, jackals, snakes and other wild animals straying into human habitations in states neighbouring the capital will now be kept at a special quarantine facility being constructed in the Delhi Zoo.

The quarantine, being set up adjacent to the wildlife hospital in the zoo, will cater to rescued and displaced wild animals, an official said.

The facility will also be used for animals that need to be kept in isolation, including animals brought from foreign countries, or other Indian zoos, and as a transit point for rescued and displaced wild animals.

Wild animals rescued by forest officials from neighbouring areas will be housed here for relief and medical aid.
