Times of India


AHMEDABAD: In a rare incident, four lions - a lioness and three cubs - have been spotted near Gondal, 37 km from Rajkot. Such an event last happened in the early 19th century.


However, after that there has been no sign of lions straying to this area, which is around 20 km from Sasan Gir.


These lions have also killed cows in Panchiyavadar village, after which panic spread among villagers.


Forest department teams have been rushed to rescue these lions and bring them back to Sasan, where they will be released once again into the jungle.
