Four rescued animals have been released back in the wild by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) office in Region 8.

They included a Brahminy Kite that was trapped in the backyard of Dr. Erlinda Martinez in Barangay Naga-Naga, Tacloban City.

Also released was a monitor lizard found by Edwin Sangon at the former Family Park in Tacloban City and was also turned over to authorities.

Two reticulated pythons from the Regional Wildlife Center in Palo were also released in the forested area of Barangay Tinalian, Abuyog Leyte.

The DENR said the animals were in good health and were fit to be returned to their natural habitat.
