Shifting lions,tigers a bad idea
Do we need tigers in Gujarat
No.Gujarat is the lone abode of Asiatic lions and Gujarat should remain so.
| HERSHAD KUMARI
Lions are prestige of Gujarat and the idea of shifting them will not go down well with the people.
No.Gujarat is a safe abode for lions than any other place in India.
| VIBHUTI VYAS
No.Lions have been here for many years now and Gujarat is their natural habitat
No,because we are not at all interested in swapping lions for tigers.
| VIA SMS
If lions are shifted from here,it will affect the already struggling tourism industry of Gujarat.
| DEVANSHU GANDHI
If the Indian government cannot protect our national animal,how can they protect lions Gujarat has been successful in protecting lions better and lions are safe in Gujarat.
| RK JADEJA
Moving lions to a new place might prove to be fatal.They should be left in their habitat only.
Shifting tigers to Gujarat and lions to Madhya Pradesh may pose a threat to both the endangered species.These are wild animals and shifting them may pose complications.I am against the idea.
| GOPAL SUVAGIYA
The tourism industry in Gujarat is already lagging behind some other states because of the prohibition law.Lions in Gir are a trademark and tourists visit the state only because of lions.
| KAVIITA VACHHRAJANI
We should have our national animal as well!
Yes,tiger is our national animal and we should have them as well.
| JAYRAJ WALA
Yes.I think having tigers in our forests will enhance the tourist flow.Its an opportunity and we should grab it.
| VIA SMS
The state really needs tigers.If we have tigers in Gir,it will surely uplift the tourism industry.
| SOYAB GARANA
Yes.lions should be allowed to live where the environment is suitable for them.
