Because there hasn’t been a rescue vehicle for the previous 10 days, the Wildlife Care Center in Bodakdev hasn’t been able to respond to cries for help right away. Between August 1 and August 20, the centre received 302 requests to rescue snakes, monitor lizards, peacocks, and other creatures.
The centre receives calls from all around the city and Daskroi range, but is unable to respond quickly since it only has one rescue van and it has been broken down for the past 10 days. The call centre receives 600 calls per month on average.
According to insider sources, the centre occasionally needs to employ private vehicles to aid in the rescue efforts.
Those in the know stated the 24-hour centre, which covers Daskroi, one of Gujarat’s largest talukas, and Ahmedabad, a large city, needs another van.
A caller to the rescue centre related the story of a monkey who perished because the rescue van did not show up. In one instance, the caller reported the monkey to the rescue centre around 6 PM on August 19; nevertheless, nobody showed up until August 20. The monkey entered an abandoned home and became trapped inside. It was famished and dehydrated when it was discovered, and it was damaged. Later, the animal passed away, but the rescuers were never able to get there.
