A 59-year-old Chinese man named Xiao works as a security guard in a community located in Chongqing.
On May 2, he found a pangolin in the bush and took it home. Reports say he was also bitten by the pangolin but he still patiently took good care of it. After taking it home, he contacted a local newspaper for help.
Now the pangolin has been taken to the zoo. A zookeeper explained that this pangolin is about two to three years old.
It was probably raised illegally by a certain restaurant or an individual in the neighborhood though no one has laid claims to the animals. He said that pangolin is under level-II state protection, and commended Xiao for doing the right thing not attempting to keep it to himself.
