Now King of Water straying outside Gir Forest


Now King of Water straying outside Gir Forest

Gujarat Samachar (Briefly translated from Gujarati)

Asiatic Lions straying outside the Gir forest area in search of food is a common thing since many decades. Many times other wild animals also move outside the forest area for various reasons like shortage of water & prey, human encroachment, road disturbances etc.

In one recent incidence a marsh crocodile accidentally fell in to bhanduria (open well or abandoned well?) of mango farm of Devjibhai Dhabhi in Sanvav village of Una Taluka. The incidence was reported to Forest department. They caught the biggest reptile of Gir after hard work of two days and let it free in Raval River inside the forest.
