The animal was rescued by one Opang Jerang of Upper Banskata early this morning.
Receiving the rescued Slow Loris, the Divisional Forest Officer, D. Ering Wildlife Sanctuary, Division, Pasighat, Tasang Taga lauded the gesture and thanked the individual who came to hand over the injured primate.
 “It is a rare gesture as people have a general tendency to kill wildlife. We need to preserve and protect our wildlife before it’s too late,” he added.
The DFO has taken strong measures in neutralizing hunting inside the D. Ering Wildlife Sanctuary by dismantling and felling down hundreds of hunting machans and salt lick ambush laid by hunters after he took charge last year.  
He further appealed every section of society to come forward in saving wildlife.
