There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

An animal in my backyard
Vishakhapatnam Lol Updated: March 10, 2019 09:38 IST

Visakhapatnam sees sharp drop in forest cover, leading to rise in man-animal conflicts
From a small fishing hamlet spread over 1.2 sq km in 1900 to a burgeoning metropolis with an area of over 680 sq km, the transformation of Visakhapatnam city has been rapid and relentless.

The city’s population has also breached the 2 million mark, up from 16,000 in 1858.

The city’s meteoric growth in the last four decades has however come at a significant cost — man-animal conflict has seen a sharp rise as the animals’ habitat continues to be encroached upon by real estate and industries.
 
Cases on the rise
The unchecked encroachment of forest space is taking a toll on the ecosystem of wild animals. In the last 15 years, the city has witnessed at least 10 leopards (panthers) straying into the city, with a few instances of the big cats walking along the road into densely populated areas such as MVP Colony, Madhavadhara and Simhachalam.


*This image is copyright of its original author

In two unfortunate incidents, two leopards were crushed under the wheels of heavy trucks when the animals had come out of the reserve forest and strayed onto the National Highway in search of food.

The last time a leopard was sighted in the city was on June 5 last year, when a CCTV camera at a residential colony in Rushikonda recorded the movement of the big cat. Alarmed residents called the police, who in turn alerted the Forest Department officials and also cautioned people living in the area to not venture out in the night.

This apart, in 2007, a spotted male barking deer entered Arilova area from Kambalakonda reserve forest area and was found in a drain at Arilova. The Animal Rescue Team reached the area, rescued the animal and sent it to the local zoo.

Members of the reptile families, including full-grown Indian rock pythons and cobras, are common even in residential areas.

Visible effects
The conflict is becoming increasingly visible over the years. In the last 15 years, the only thing to have seen a drastic drop is the forests in and around the city limits. As per the National Forest Policy 1988, one-third of the city’s area should be dedicated to vegetation, including forest area. As per a survey by the forest department, less than 18% of the city space is dedicated to vegetation.

Habitat loss to blame
According to Prof. U. Shameem from the Department of Zoology, Andhra University, being rendered homeless and being deprived of food and water is the prime reason for animals straying into human habitats.
"In the name of development and urbanisation, human have been encroaching upon the natural habitat of the animals, leaving them homeless and without food and water," Prof. Shameem said.
 
Curator of Indira Gandhi Zoological Park (IGZP) (visited many times and only zoo I saw in this entire world Ha Ha ) Yasoda Bai said that the geographic condition of Visakhapatnam is different as the NH passes through the forest region. In some cases, wild animals come out of the jungle to nearby localities in search of water, especially during summer.

"To address this issue, we have been arranging artificial water bodies for the sake of wild animals in the Kambalakonda Wildlife Sanctuary (I visited the eco-tourism zone (opposite to zoo) few years back for picnic or vacation) forest region to reduce the man-animal conflict," said Ms. Yasoda Bai.

Unique topography
The city of Visakhapatnam is blessed with a unique topography. It has two reserve forests such as Sitakonda and Kambalakonda embedded within the city limits. While Sitakonda extends to about 500 hectares, Kambalakonda measures about 7,100 hectares.
 
While some of the forested area in both the forests has been lost, the biggest loss is the revenue hills that are part of the forests.
About 80% of the revenue hillocks have been encroached, thanks to rampant illegal quarrying.

Though revenue hillocks are not classified as reserve forests, they do have sufficient foliage for animal sustenance, said a senior officer from the Forest Department.

12-Year-Old Tiger Killed, Eaten By Another At Kanha Tiger Reserve
Initial probe suggests the tiger, aged 12, possibly died following a territorial fight with another wild cat, an official said

*This image is copyright of its original author

The dead feline, T-36 and its carcass was spotted on Thursday by a patrolling party (File)


MANDLA, MADHYA PRADESH: 
An adult tiger was killed and eaten by another tiger in the Kanha national park in Madhya Pradesh, an official said on Friday.
This is the second incident of cannibalism reported from the Kanha Tiger Reserve (KTR) in the last two months.
Initial probe suggests the tiger, aged 12, possibly died following a territorial fight with another wild cat, KTR field director L Krishnamurty said.
The dead feline was known as T-36 and its carcass was spotted Thursday by a patrolling party, he said.
The patrolling party spotted another tiger, identified as eight-year old T-56, eating the carcass of T-36 in the Magarnala forest area under Kisli zone of KTR, Krishnamurty said.

The forest team is still monitoring the area, he said.

In the third week of January, a tiger had killed and eaten a tigress in KTR.

This may very well be the 3rd Tiger that the Sangam Male has now killed and eaten, we know of the Budbudi Female for sure, this Male and the other female who was killed and eaten a few months back.
While I don't think cannibalism is an abnormality in Tigers, I don't recall any Tiger that has done so quite as often as the Sangam Male.

@Rage2277 Looks like a clean kill, no struggling and fighting as there are no cuts and wounds visible on him. He is the god of kanha jungle now. He can do anything. May be someday he may himself before dying coz it is "SANGAM STYLE" not SINGAM STYLE (BGM plays, movie name singam 2 a tamil movie). LOL.

Sorry, looks like he got some injuries in the right hind leg (in Pckts post of tiger directory). I thought he got no wounds in that fight.

Tadoba-Karhandla tiger corridor to be cut in road widening

*This image is copyright of its original author

Pic for representational purpose


Even as NHAI has geared up to widen Nagpur‐Umred‐Naghbid‐Brahmapuri‐Armori section of NH‐353D and Gondkhairi to Saoner road through Kalmeshwar and Dhapewada from existing two to four-lane with paved shoulders, the former will cut through tiger corridor between Tadoba and Umred-Karhandla Wildlife Sanctuary (UKWS).

The section of the road between Umred and Bhiwapur falls in the eco-sensitive zone (ESZ) of the sanctuary and any upgradation will need permission of state wildlife board.

We are digging our own graveNeeraj Sharma


Though most of the land involved in road widening between Kalmeshwar and Saoner is agricultural, wild animal deaths have been regularly reported between Umred and Bhiwapur. Anticipating that getting wildlife permission will not be easy, the PWD too had left the road untouched and worked on an alternative road.

“As the road is passing through the middle of the forest area, bypassing the forest and the proposed ESZ is not possible. We plan to leave the road near the sanctuary untouched and if not possible, we will implement the project with mitigation measures,” NHAI sources said.
