A rare golden eagle which was handed over to the forest department died late Sunday night although several attempts were being made by the forest officials to save the bird.
Naorem Munal meitei, Assistant conservator of Forest stated that the eagle was handed over by one Sagolsem Gigin from Wangoo. The full grown golden Eagle is rarely found species in the state, Munal added.
He continued that the bird was handed over to Forest Department after it was found by some children on Sunday evening who were playing in the field at Wangoo. The bird was in a very weak condition when found by the children that it can’t fly and seems to be eaten poisonus insecticides, Munal added.
Munal said that the forest department along with veterinary experts had tried their best to save the bird, but it died at late night after bleeding from his mouth.
Munal appealed to the general public not to use insecticides and nets to trap birds who are our priceless assets.
“We should join hands to save such golden eagles and other rare birds. They are our guests and have the right to live. We should realize that human beings can’t survive without birds and animals. We also should keep in mind that we are bound by the law of the land, let the birds and animals survive freely, they should be saved at any cost,” Munal appealed.
