2023-02-18: Cared for until 2021 when his owner died, local media said. He was then left on his own on the streets to beg in the town of Ramnagar. He collapsed a month ago in the foothills after a long history of an untreated fracture in his right fore limb, a torn and and mutilated footpad on his left fore limb and multiple health issues, all of which were compounded by a severe lack of veterinary care over the last 5 to 6 months.
