She was rescued by Wildlife Rangers on 16th July and treated for injuries, which were focused mainly on her head.
Later, she was transferred to the rehabilitan center in Sungkai, Perak, for further follow-ups and monitoring by vetenarians to closely ensure that she recovers fully.
The Wildlife Department is pleased to note that so far, their efforts seem promising as her facial injuries have healed and she has recovered her appetite enough to consume meat again.
