Junagadh forest department has created new Trackers party to deal with issues pertaining to lions outside the sanctuary area.
Last month, locals of Mandanpara and Chorvadi villages near Bilkha killed a lion in self defense. On the backdrop of this incident, the forest department decided to extend its supervision also in non-forest area around Gir.
Trackers party will build relation with the village people settled around forest area. There would also be an information mechanism. Junaadh’s CCF Sudhir Chaturvedi has appointed RFO Dipak Pandya to lead trackers party. In its first success, the trackers party relocated a 6-ft-crocodile from Sodvadar village to Vilingdon dam.
