The world knows Indian all-rounder Yusuf Pathan for his on-field heroics at the international level in the IPL and domestic circuit. But not a lot of people know his love for animals and nature on the whole. He misses no chance to spend quality time around them. Even recently, the cricketer rescued an injured bird that he found near Visakhapatnam on the highway.
He took the bird with him in his car and requested for help on Twitter while making sure that it was treated properly. This heartwarming gesture is enough to prove how much he deeply he cares about animals and birds. The birthday boy, who turned 36 today, has a special liking to Horses. He often shares pictures while riding with them and takes utmost care of his four-legged friends.
Found this bird somewhere near Vishakapatnam looks scared and maybe injured. Can someone share the helpline number of a rescue team or those who can take him and take care. #help #urgent pic.twitter.com/vFmBnl6K6H

Recently, Yusuf also got clicked with the elephants and has a lot of different species of pets at his house in Baroda. It goes without saying that whenever possible, he looks after them and ensures they get love and are cared for.
He also supports various wildlife protection movements and recently pledged support for the Bandipur forest and night traffic beda campaign for the preservation of the forest land as well as wildlife.

Yusuf Pathan is someone very close to his roots, prefers to be around nature and that in a way keeps him grounded and down to earth. If the cricket fans love him for his aggressive batting, the Baroda cricketer leaves them amazed with his off-field gestures. Much like his love for animals, Yusuf, the man of few words, transforms into Gerald Durrell while speaking about the plants and farming.
Rose Garden is his favourite and during his time away from the game, unlike other sportsmen, he loves spending time gardening and farming where he grows vegetables and fruits.
Yusuf Pathan is currently busy playing the Ranji Trophy season for Baroda and has been in really good form with the bat so far. He certainly looks to be the man who will answer Baroda’s call this season and help his team improve their fortunes.
