Two separate incidences have been reported in Divya Bhaskar Gujarati daily.
In one incidence we lost a healthy lioness due to Open Well accident at Aanjani village near Sutrapada(Sutrpada falls outside Gir area). Along with a calf was also found dead inside the well which means lioness must be on hunting prowl. Guj. Forest Dept. RFO K. R. Vaghasiya got the bodies out and sent it for postmortem at Sasan.
