Two lions killed 100 sheep and 40 goats of a farmer in Chodvadi village of Bhesan taluka in Junagadh district. The village borders the Gir forest. The incident happened in Gir North range.
Sources in the department confirmed the killings. “The incident happened early in the evening when the farmer had locked up his herd and gone to the main village to attend a function,” said the source. He said that the herd had been milked and left in the pen. On return, the farmer found his herd under attack and gathered the villagers. “Together they scared away the lions although we don’t know whether it was a lion or a lioness,” said the source. He said that the beasts might have jumped the wall to reach their prey. “In all, the farmer had 210 sheep and goat in the herd. Of this 15 goats and 5 sheep have been severely injured,” said the source.
