Nayagarh: At a time the vultures are on the verge of extinction in India, a rare bird of prey has been rescued at Gunduria village under Ranapur block in Odisha’s Nayagarh district.
The locals found an ailing vulture near a poultry farm at the village on Friday following which they informed the forest department.
On receiving information, forester Kaibalya Behera and Snake Helpline member Ajay Kumar Das reached the spot and rescued the vulture.
As the bird was suffering from illness, the forest department made arrangements for its treatment.
Since the vultures were absent from the village since a past three decades, the curiosity ran high among the villagers to see the bird species.
