Timely intervention from the concerned authorities has given another chance at a dignified life for a stray mare found loitering the streets of Mankara grama panchayat in Palakkad district . Mr.Gokul Das, The Panchayat President , was instrumental in taking up the cause of treating the injured and desolate animal with the help of animal† lovers and Dr.Sreehari who treated the animal. The animal was found amputated below the coronet in the right forelimb perhaps to prevent some earlier injury from worsening. Other minor injuries were treated effectively. Mr.Gokul Das has made an appeal to all animal lovers and NGOs working for the welfare of animals to adopt the mare and to find a shelter through the audio visual media.
