Rescues from the helpline: September!

October 5, 2020 | By Smriti Suri

Every month, we receive hundreds of calls regarding urban wildlife in distress. To combat the rising number of conflict cases, Wildlife SOS operates a 24×7 emergency rescue helplines manned by our Rapid Response Team in three cities:

Delhi NCR – +91-9871963535

Agra & Mathura in Uttar Pradesh – +91-9917109666

Vadodara, Gujarat – +91-9825011117

If you come across any wild animal in distress in the following cities, please alert our rescue team on these numbers as soon as possible!


The month of September started with an unusual rescue for the Rapid Response Unit in Delhi; A Cobra snake that paid a visit to the President’s Estate (Rashtrapati Bhavan) was safely rescued by Wildlife SOS and later released back in natural habitat!

In Agra, from rescuing a 5 foot long Cobra snake from a well & a monitor lizard stuck in a drainage pipe to safely extricating a massive 10 foot long Indian Rock Python from a flyover construction site in Akola, the Wildlife SOS team has had quite the action-packed month! During one particular weekend, the team tended to over 20 rescues! In one terrifying incident, a venomous Krait was found in the toilet of a house in Shastripuram, Agra. The team had to remove the commode entirely before safely extricating the snake. The rescue operation took two hours following which the snake was released back into its natural habitat.

Back in Delhi, A five-foot-long Indian Rock python was found under the CNG cylinder kit of an auto-rickshaw in Tughlakabad. The snake was rescued and safely released into its natural habitat! In another incident, a three-foot-long monitor lizard was found sitting on a fire hydrant at Moolchand Medicity, located in Artoni, Agra, only to be rescued by the Wildlife SOS team and later released back in its natural habitat.
