  1. Days are not far to see such incidents happening in Belgaum City if the human encroachment is not STOPPED. Let the wildlife live undisturbed its my humble submission to all………

  2. Before commenting, think of a situation.
    The people in city go and disturb the wildfile for fun.
    But the people who resides in villages near forest are disturbed a lot by wildlife, go to the villages like Bastwad, In rainy season they wont have road to come to city, they get isolated because of dense forest region.
    Their crops are disturbed by elephants during harvesting etc etc..
