Rains Affect Rescue Centre

At the animal orphanage at Katraj in Pune, one of the best shelters I have seen - we made friends with some wonderful leopard cubs there, and a wild boar named Antya - heavy rains have been giving them a tough time. We often think that birds don't suffer in the rains because they can simply fly off to a dry place, but here is a report about thirty crows that were electrocuted, nests that were destroyed, adn owls whose wings were so thoroughly drenched that they could not fly.

As for the 300 rescued animals at the shelter, they were kept dry with borrowed sheets, newspapers and blankets. The shelter is run by the Indian Herpetological Society. More about it later, but right now I'm jsut glad the animals are fine.
