Two students use pocket money to save an owl
Aizawl, May 10 (UNI) Two school children have bought an owl from the market and handed over the bird to the animal rights activist here.
According to the Peoples' Animal Group (PAG), states' apex animal protection organisation, activist C Luri said two high school girls Lalrin Pui and Zorampari heard that some people were selling a barn owl at the capital new market.
The students used their pocket money to buy the bird, she added.
''Since they know that I am an animal rights activist, these girls came to me and gave me the owl. When I tried to repay them the money they had spent, they did not accept it,'' Ms Luri said.
She also added younger generation have become aware about the need to protect wildlife.
The PAG is unhappy with the state government, especially the Veterenary and A H departments, which did not initiate to set up Soceity for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in the state or the districts as stipulated by a Supreme Court ruling.
