Lion cub seperated from its mother seen in
Divya Bhasker –
Translation in Brief:
News 1: Yesterday night a lion was separated and found on Timbadi – Vaghaniya road in Liliya. First of all people from the village tried to trace the mother to surrender the cub. But after hard work of whole night they could not succeed. Then the villagers informed the Forest Department to help the cub. The incidence shows how the people surrounding Gir forest has become alert in Asiatic Lion Conservation issue.
News 2: In two separate incidences, two days before two cows were killed by a family of lions; and yesterday evening one cow owned by Maldhari Ukkabhai Dabhi was killed by a lioness and two cubs.
News 3: Leader of Laur village D. D. Varu informs that before five years there were only two lions and now there are fifteen lions residing in the area.
Kishore Kotecha’s comments on this article:
Two incidences in above news 2 and two other incidences of attack that I have sent earlier today clearly depict how tolerant the people of Gir are? In spite of health & wealth loss to them due to lions, they still love and protect the beast. I can only say “People of Saurashtra are Lion Hearted”.
News 3 above signifies Asiatic Lion’s move to regain its original territory by its own. And little more speed by Govt. of Gujarat to develop these satellite areas would once again create a praiseworthy history of conservation.
