Watch: The World’s Most Trafficked Mammal Rescued In Jharkhand

A rare and known to be the world’s most trafficked mammal, endangered pangolin, was captured in Jharkhand on Saturday. The mammal was captured by villagers of the Rangachapd village, who found it in a field.

The video of the same incident was shared by the Indian Forest Services officer Susanta Nanda on Twitter and shows the animal being held by a local to prevent its escape.

Nanda while sharing the video wrote that the animal was stressed due to heckling by the villagers. They have gathered to see the mammal and can also be seen holding it by the tail.
