Times of India
Dhari : A chinkara and three neelgais were found dead at Kuguda village farm in Tarasiya range, 15 km off Gir (East) sanctuary boundary on Saturday. However, state forest department ruled out any possibility of a poaching case.
Foresters were notified about the dead animals early in the morning by villagers. Manishwar Raja, DFO of Gir (East), said, the neelgais were found lying on the boundary of the farm, while the chinkara was in the farmland. Raja said, "Either the animals died after drinking some poisonous water containing urea or some other substance, or they consumed something like castor seeds.
"The forensic post mortem is being done on the animals, and its reports will clear the cause of death," he added. How-ever, Raja made it clear that there were no external injury marks on the bodies and so hunting or poaching was ruled out.
