A four-year-old lion died due to snake bite on the outskirts of Pipardi village in Savarkundla Taluka of Amreli district. A villager spotted the dead lion and informed the forest department.

"The post-mortem report confirmed that there was a snake bite on the lion's left leg, which caused its death. Its entire body had turned bluish. We assume snake may have bit the lion 12 to 14 hours before the body was found,'' said Anshuman Sharma, deputy conservator of forests, (Gir East Division), Dhari.

Everyone should know that if a snake shows and ruins your party, get everyone else out of the way! Best to call a snake catcher or handler to deal with the problem.
All the best
