Deer poaching Gir

Deer poaching Gir
Gujarat Samachar
Briefly translated from Gujarati

Forest staff was patrolling in Babariya range at Popatdi Ness area near Machundri Dam. They spotted two young man in the deep forest carrying cloth-sack (potlu). Forest guard tried to stop them but they ran away throwing away cloth- bag. On checking staff found fresh meat in the bag. It is assumed that culprits had poached hunted a spotted deer (chital) with a gun. Meat samples are sent to FSL for further investigation, said Kalara DCF.

Two poachers had fled to nearby Rasulpara village where forest staff has started search operation with the help of local police and Dog squad.

This Place of incidence is the same where six (of eight) lions were poached in Mar-2007.
