Muvattupuzha: Four puppies who were saved from molten tar last month, have been returned to their mother.
Animal Welfare Organisation Daya rescued the puppies from Kunnathunadu in Ernakulam on March 30.
Some cops had found the puppies stuck in the tar beneath a car at the Kunnathunadu police station premises. The cops then sought the help of Daya activists Ambili Purakal, and Ramesh Pulikan. The puppies were rescued by the duo after several hours of effort.
The activists then took the puppies to Muvattupuzha, gave medicines and cared for them.
It took several days to remove the tar completely from their body.
Another 20 days were needed for the burn injuries and healing of wounds. After the puppies became hale and healthy, they were returned to their mother.
