Jun 02, 2018

Animal handlers spent 30 minutes removing a monitor lizard stuck on a gate in Thailand before it was rushed to veterinarians who patched up its wound. The creature has since been recovering at the Huay Prue Animal Center and is due to be released back into the wild.“The lizard was leaking a lot of blood, but it received treatment and was stabilized,” rescue officer Surachai Uthaiwat said. “He will be released back to nature. This situation is unusual so it should not happen again.”
