New Delhi: A 6-feet-long Indian Rock Python was rescued from a tree located near the Saket Metro station. The reptile was spotted scaling up a tree by people heading towards the Metro station. They alerted the PCR, who in turn contacted NGO Wildlife SOS for the python’s rescue.

A crowd of over 200 onlookers had gathered around, adding to the congestion of the traffic on the Mehrauli-Badarpur Road.

 

Two rescuers from the NGO, along with a team of fire safety officers and police officers, arrived at the site.

After an assessment of the situation, the Wildlife SOS team and a fire truck operator used the aerial ladder to reach the distressed reptile and managed to extricate the distressed reptile. Subsequently, they moved it safely to a transport container.
