Maya Foundation in Paro and the Royal Bhutan Army rescued a severely injured mule from Jangothang along the Jholomari trek route on August 3. It took two days of hiking to carry the mule to the road point at Shana. The animal’s front leg was broken about three months ago, is severely infected and was abandoned since then. The mule is now recovering and receiving emergency care at The Barnyard Bhutan Animal Rescue & Sanctuary at Paro.
