Days after the death of Indian Gaur, another one was seen in Pune's Bavdhan area today.

As per the report by The Indian Express, the rescue operation has been launched by the forest department team and police teams are deployed for crowd control.

On December 9, a gaur (Indian bison) strayed into a residential area in Pune city's Kothrud, triggering panic among residents, and died after being captured by a forest team.

After the death, Divisional Conservator of Forests Rahul Patil had said that the animal may have died because of stress or rise in the body temperature.

The gaur, also called as the Indian bison, has been listed as 'vulnerable' on the International Union for Conservation of Nature's (IUCN) Red List since 1986.
