40 coots and 1 garganey were rescued from poachers at Nal Sarovar by the Forest department and brought in to us for primary treatment.
All the birds had their legs broken and in some cases even the wings. The poor things were destined for hotels and other eateries as delicaises before they were rescued. The birds were given primary treatment at our hospital and then shifted to the Forest department for long term recovery, if they make it. Sadly due to the extreme level of injuries most of the birds face a grim future.
