A pangolin caught in a fishing net laid in the Kalpitiya Lagoon was handed over to the Wildlife Conservation Department on Wednesday.

The two-feet-long male pangolin may have been washed away by floods into the lagoon.

Wildlife Officer M.K. Moratenna said the pangolin is in sound health, and it will be released to the Wilpattu National Park soon.
