In 2006 the we were alerted about an illegal zoo operating in a college run by an influential person. We took help of the forest department and visited the zoo and found that the entire lot of 250 animals were being kept sans any legality and without mandatory permission from the Central Zoo Authority. Despite pressure and threats,  we  diligently worked to get an FIR registered and obtained order from the Hon’ble Court against the owner. All 260 animals were rehabilitated to the Wildlife Rescue Centre in Pune. Animals seized included Peacock, Barking Deer, Monkeys, Wild Goats, Geese, Macaws, Cockatoos and Marmosets.
