Students use pocket money to save owl
Aizawl, May 10 (UNI) Two school grils pooled in their pocket money to rescue an owl from poachers and handed over the bird to a animal rights activist here.
According to the Peoples' Animal Group (PAG) activist C Luri when the two high school girls, Lalrin Pui and Zorampari heard that a barn owl had been trapped and put up for sale in the local market, they used their pocket money to buy the bird and brought it to her.
''When I tried to repay them, they did not accept,'' Ms Luri said, adding that it was a positive sign that the younger generation was becoming aware about the need to protect wildlife in a state which had not even set up a Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals despite by a Supreme Court ruling.
