Three kittens of a jungle cat (felis chaus) were rescued after being found in a village under Dauli range on Sunday. On being informed, the forest department team from Lalkuan reached the site to find kittens among the bushes. The site was cordoned off and staff was deployed to prevent disturbance by human activity.
This was done to enable the mother of the kittens to take its babies back from the inhabited area to the reserved forest area. After the personnel guarded the site for about six hours, the jungle cat took its kittens away from this site to the reserved forest. The Dauli range officer Anil Joshi said that the kittens found near an inhabited area were about 10 days young. Western circle conservator of forests, Parag Madhukar Dhakate said that during the harvesting of wheat, the jungle cat often gives birth to its litter near human inhabitations. A similar case had also been seen last year when a jungle cat had given birth to three kittens at farm in Jaspur.
