Deva lost a lot of blood from the wounds caused by animals who had scratched and gouged his body. The bull’s situation became direr when he attempted to escape from them and fled into a canal, where he became stuck, silently shivering as his blood oozed into the water around him.

Luckily, he was spotted by an off-duty but ever-vigilant Animal Rahat caretaker, who called his coworkers for help.

Animal Rahat’s staff treat Deva’s wounds.

At first, Deva wasn’t well enough to interact with the caretakers and veterinarian. But their patience and calm tones quickly won his trust. Deva’s relaxed ears and tail swishes told our team that he would allow them to help him pull through.

He’s got a long road to recovery ahead of him, but Animal Rahat will be there each step of the way, encouraging him and helping him heal.

Once Deva was well enough, staff welcomed him to his new home at the sanctuary.
