Bears wreak havoc in Ganderbal villages
Ganderbal, May 6: The bears have wreaked havoc in various villages of Ganderbal district attacking and killing livestock of many people.
“The bears have devoured 22 sheep in two different attacks at Arhama and Yarmuqam in a month,” the residents said adding the wildlife officials were failing to curb these attacks which caused huge financial losses to the livestock owners.
They said the livestock owners were apprehensive about further attacks. “The bears are moving freely in the area and their attacks are eminent,” they said and criticized the wildlife department of indifference towards the issue.
