Pride of eleven lions in Fatsar village


Pride of eleven lions in Fatsar village

Divya Bhaskar

Briefly translated from Gujarati

In an incidence a pride of eleven lions killed two cows in Fatsar village of Una Taluka. The kill was done right in the centre of village. Around 1000 villagers (viewers) had gathered to see the lions. In spite of such a big crowd, lions enjoyed their kill till morning.

Kishore Kotecha's Comment: Fatsar is one of those villages adjoining Gir forest where lions are regular visitors. This is not new for lions or residents of Fatsar. But few local village leaders want their names in the news paper. Hence such incidence reporting by media has increased these days. I humbly request media to give less importance to such small incidences, as it may have negative impact on conservation efforts.
