Goa :It is time that citizens must learn to coexist with their nature and surroundings . Recently,Charan Desai , animal recuer from Ponda, received a call from a family in Ponda that they had a snake that was trapped in the nets at home. “When I received the call, I knew it must have been bad, but when I reached there I was shocked to see that the snake was struggling to get free and in the bargain got entangled even more in the net which was left abandoned in the house,” says Charan.
The rat snake was rescued but has badly injured its jaw. “Since the jaw is the only way they hunt for their prey, the vets are trying to repair it. In most cases there is a very little chance that they will survive. Recently, we had a python that was rescued and we had to give it some stitches, it recuperated well and is now released in the wild,” says Charan. Ghost nets are extremely dangerous for animals as they get caught in it and struggle to set free.
