Personnel of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources- National Capital Region rescues a wounded reticulated python (left photo) on Thursday, March 8, 2018,  in Novaliches, Quezon City.   Joseph Lim, a resident of Greenview Executive Village, said he caught the snake near his house, with wounds on head and tail from a fight with a rat, presumably its prey.  Aside from the python, a monkey (right photo) was also turned over to the BMB group during the rescue ops, after Lim succeeded in convincing his friend Edsel Eleoco to turnover his pet monkey of three years.  The two wildlife will be nurtured first at the DENR-BMB Wildlife Rescue Center before they will be re-introduced into their natural habitat to ensure they are in good health and be able to survive in the wild. ###
