“The animal was recovered from Ghaziabad municipal corporation’s green belt which is behind the house. A resident of the house spotted the animal, and a team of the divisional forest department was requisitioned. The animal was safely captured after over an hour,” said Manish Singh, divisional forest officer (DFO).

“The jackal is primarily a shy animal and wary of humans. It scavenges for food and sometimes may cause harm to infants and small children. Otherwise, it does not pose any serious threat,” the DFO said, adding that another call regarding a leopard sighting was reported from Chudiyala but its presence could not be established.
