Python rescued, released in Sylhet

A giant python was released to Khadimnagar National Park in Sylhet Saturday a day after it got trapped in a fishing net.

Two local fishermen Indrajit and Chittaranjan were fishing in the Bagha Haor area at Golapganj upazila on Friday when the python got trapped, said Ashraful Kabir, coordinator of Bhoomishontan Bangladesh, an environmental organisation in Sylhet, adding that the fishermen convinced the locals not to kill it.

Later, being informed by two local youths, Rasel Ahmed Raju and Kawsar Ahmed, Manjur Ahmed, president of Pradhikar, an animal rights organisation of Sylhet Agriculture University students, rescued the python and released it to the park in the presence of both the organisations’ members and forest official Abdul Kader.

Frequent media reports of wildlife rescue are being helpful in making people more conscious of not killing the wildlife, Kabir added.
