HYDERABAD/NIZAMABAD: Forest Department officials rescued an adult sloth bear that had ventured into a fruit plantation in Thorrur village of Mahabubabad district on Friday. Mahabubabad District Forest Officer Kista Goud said that the bear must have come out of the hillocks located near the plantation in search of water or food.

Soon after the villagers informed forest officials, a team was dispatched from the Warangal Zoo, including veterinarian Dr Praveen who tranquillized the bear. The team had to track the bear for close to 5 km. It was later released in Pakhal Wildlife Sanctuary the same night.
