Hunting goes hand in hand with encroachments in Charmadi

Hunting goes hand in hand with encroachments in Charmadi

Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, Dec 19 2017: Apart from forest encroachment that goes on unabated in the Charmadi range of Western Ghats, also hunting of wildlife in broad daylight is rampant, allege environmentalists.



Sahyadri Sanchaya’s Dinesh Holla encountered a group of about 35 people armed with guns and sharp weapons at Baluru Gudda near Kottigehara in Chikkamagaluru district during a recent trek. His attempts to dissuade the group from hunting were futile and instead he and his companions were “advised” to mend their ways, he said.

Holla’s complaints to the Forest Department did not get any response, but he got calls from the hunting gang warning him to keep away from informing the department, he alleged.
