ADILABAD: Polluted water is playing havoc with the lives of wild animals this summer in the Kawal Tiger Reserve. According to veterinarians, wild animals are falling sick after consuming contaminated water in the forest. A veterinarian who attended a dead ‘Neelgai’ confirmed that the deer died after drinking polluted water in Kadam forest range. There have been many such incidents that have gone unreported and unnoticed in the last two months.   

Besides, wild animals which venture out of the jungles in search of drinking water are falling prey to poachers. Forest officials have dug up borewells at a few places to fill water tanks in the forests to quench the thirst of the forest animals after they realised the severity of the drought on forest animals but veterinarians feel that the effort may well be too late.

 

Many forest animals recently died due to various reasons in Laxmipur, Gangapur, Allampalli and Kadam beats comes under Kadam range. The local people say that there is lack of supervision of higher ups on field level staff.
