Drop in casualties in man-animal conflicts


PUNE: The state wooded area division information have published a dip within the number of deaths in man-animal war cases in 2018-19, as compared to the similar length the former year.

The easiest number used to be recorded in 2016-17 with 53 deaths. The number went all the way down to 50 in 2017-18. Only 25 deaths were recorded in 2018-19 until December 2018. The number of deaths is predicted to be much less although figures for the last three months, up to March, are incorporated.


As of December 2018, cases of harm led to due to wild animals are 181, an important decline from 349 in 2017-18. The number used to be the easiest in 2015-16 with 700 accidents in all.

Vivek Khandekar, chief conservator of forests (Pune circle), stated the drop within the number of deaths and accidents in man-animal war within the state could not be attributed to any specific explanation why. “The man-animal war that ends up in accidents and deaths are always led to by chance encounters. It’s by no means a planned thing as chance is always a question of likelihood.”


Khandekar, then again, stated that the tasks taken by the wooded area division may have ended in the dip in numbers. “Wherever there's a upper focus in the case of leopard inhabitants, we keep spreading awareness amongst people. We ship out wooded area division groups to villages telling them in regards to the precautionary measures that need to be taken.”


Vidya Athreya, biologist at Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), stated she used to be not shocked by the drop within the number of deaths and accidents in man-animal war. “I’m not shocked because the state wooded area division has undertaken numerous truly good tasks, in particular in Pune and Mumbai districts. In Mumbai, no deaths were led to by leopard last year,” he stated.


As to the sorts of wild animals most commonly fascinated with those assaults, Khandekar stated, “Some of the principle forms of wild animals fascinated with those cases are leopards, tigers, crocodiles, alligators and wild boars. Different varieties of canine, like hyenas and wolves, are also the reason for such conflicts.”
