Poachers Vs. Predators




SEVERAL ARRESTS AND SEIZURE OF TIGER SKINS, BONES AND IRON TRAPS ARE A CLEAR INDICATION OF POACHERS BEING EXTREMELY ACTIVE IN THE NATIONAL PARKS..

THE MOST COMMON WAYS OF POACHING ARE
POISONING, TRAPPING, ELECTROCUTION AND SNARING..
THE POACHERS OFTEN TEMPT THE VILLAGERS LIVING NEAR THE TIGER HABITAT AS THEY KNOW THE MOVEMENT OF THE TIGER BETTER THAN THE POACHERS.. SOMETIMES THE POACHERS EVEN OUTSOURCE THE JOB TO THE VILLAGERS, AND THE JOB IS DONE FOR NOT MORE THAN A SUM OF THREE TO FIVE THOUSAND RUPEES..

ON JUNE 7 A TIGER SKIN WAS RECOVERED FROM ERAMANGALAM IN KERELA.. LAST WEEK TWO TIGERS WERE FOUND DEAD UNDER SUSPICIOUS CIRCUMSTANCES IN KARNATAKA'S BANDIPUR RESERVE.. ON MAY 16TH THE CID FOREST CELL OF THE KARNATAKA POLICE HAD SEIZED A TIGER SKIN IN NAZARBAD.. THIS ANIMAL WAS POISONED A MONTH BACK.. 106 PIECES OF TIGER BONE WAS SIEZED FROM THE HOUSE OF NAWAB ALI IN SATNA DISTRICT OF MADHYA PRADESH ON 29TH MAY.. ON 31ST MARCH A TIGER WAS FOUND INJURED AFTER BEING SHOT BY POACHERS.. IT WAS PARALYSED.. THIS ANIMAL WAS SHIFTED TO NANDANKANAN ZOO..


I CAN STILL REMEMBER AN ARTICLE PUBLISHED IN THE TIMES.. A YEAR AGO.. STATING.. A TIGER WORTH 20 CRORES IN THE FOREIGN MARKET IS SOLD FOR NOT MORE THAN 20 THOUSAND IN INDIA.. 

THESE VILLAGERS DONT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING.. THEY'RE
 NOT ONLY KILLING TIGERS BUT AT THE SAME TIME THEY'RE KILLING 
THEMSELVES.. SOMETIMES THEY KILL TIGERS IF THEY FEAR THE DANGER
OF THEM KILLING THEIR LIVESTOCKS.. AND SOMETIMES THEY DO THIS AS A PART OF VENGEANCE..

THE FINAL TIGER CENCUS FIGURES ARE EXPECTED TO COME BY THE END OF THIS YEAR.. AND I WOULD NOT BE SURPRISED IF THE FIGURE FALLS EVEN LOWER..

IS THIS THE TREATMENT OUR NATIONAL ANIMAL DESERVES FROM US ??

शायद अब जरुरत इस बात की है कि वन्यप्राणियों का शिकार करने वालों या उनके खाल का कारोबार करने वालो व उन्हे इस काम में सहयोग देने वालों की सजा बहुत ही ज्यादा कड़ी कर दी जाए!
अक्सर देखने में आया है कि ऐसे काम करने वालों को सरकारी कर्मियों का सहयोग मिलता है तो ऐसे सरकारी कर्मियों को तो और भी कड़ी सजा देने का प्रावधान होना चाहिए।

कड़ी से कड़ी सजा के भय से शायद यह सब कम हो जाए!

बढ़िया आलेख!

It's all very sad. I watched a programme on BBC1 last night about the plight of the tiger. We hope to raise a lot of money to keep tigers and people apart, and re-home people in new areas. This is our last cgance to try to save the most beautiful BIG CAT in the whole world.

WHEN A MAN KILLS A TIGER, THEY CALL IT A SPORT.. WHEN A TIGER KILLS A MAN,THEY CALL IT FEROCITY.. !!!!
