This beautiful girl was originally sighted dragging a bamboo catching pole around her waist. The style that dog meat traders are renowned for using. We can only assume that she was intended for dinner and somehow managed to escape!
Some kind locals tried to help Asha, removing the pole. But were unsuccessful in releasing the self tightening wire loop that was cutting into her before she disappeared on them.
She was reported to BARC by some concerned tourists who saw her staggering in the streets, very close to death. Her deep, badly infected wound was full of maggots and only millimeters away from vital organs.
Asha has now made a full recovery from these injuries and is currently living at the BARC Sanctuary. She may remain one of our permanent residents as she is understandably traumatized and wary around people.
