One Asian Palm Civet (𝘗𝘢𝘳𝘢𝘥𝘰𝘹𝘶𝘳𝘶𝘴 𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘮𝘢𝘱𝘩𝘳𝘰𝘥𝘪𝘵𝘶𝘴) was turned over by Ms. Jane Oblan of Brgy. Bancao-bancao, Puerto Princesa City to the Palawan Council for Sustainable Development Staff (PCSDS) last April 8, 2021.
According to Ms. Oblan, the Asian Palm Civet entered their house at around 10 PM on April 7. Knowing such wildlife species needs to be protected, she immediately reported the said incident to the PCSDS.
In the initial assessment done by the PCSD staff on the Civet, it was revealed that the Civet had several scars on its body – two on its head and one on its left paw. The PCSD staff presumed that it was kept as a pet because of the visible scar caused by a tight leash on its paw.
The Asian Palm Civet was brought to the Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center (PWRCC) on the same day for thorough check-ups and rehabilitation.
