Rare fishing cat captured in Chattogram village

A rare fishing cat, locally known as ‘mechho bagh’, was captured in Azimnagar village of Fatikchhari upazila on Monday night.

Upazila Nirbahi officer (UNO) Sayedul Arefin said Tuesday that local people spotted the fishing cat near a water body close to the house of a person named Enam Saudagor.

They managed to capture the fishing cat after two hours of frantic efforts and handed over the animal to the forest department.

Prof Manjurul Kibria of Zoology Department at Chattogram University, said, 'Fishing cats are on the brink of extinction due to their depleting habitat. They feed on fish and are usually found in hilly areas and near rivers."

On April 13, a number of fishing cats were found roaming around the house of a man named Azam Talukdar in Uttar Nischintapur area of the upazila.
