FINALLY, HIDING BEAR FLEES INTO JUNGLE Sunday, 21 May 2017 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar

Sunday, 21 May 2017 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
After injuring two persons and keeping forest and police personnel and Raksimunda villagers on tenterhooks for more than 18 hours, the bear finally fled from the bamboo bushes, wherein it was hiding, around 2.30 am on Saturday.
Interestingly, the bear managed to avoid nets spread around the bushes and a cage kept for catching. It may be noted that another bear had fled into a nearby forest after being chased by villagers.
Meanwhile, the injured Gram Rakhi of Bandana Kata village, Tarani Bag, who was undergoing treatment in the VISMAR, Burla has been referred to the SCB Medical College Hospital in Cuttack in worsening of his condition.
This incident has once again brought the people’s behaviour in dealing with such situations to the fore. They were in a hostile mood and trying to kill the bear, according to sources. However, they were convinced not to do so after talks held between village leaders and forest personnel.
Locals have demanded for a corpus fund at the range level to tackle the situation immediately. They too demanded that a wildlife squad and a tranqualising team be kept at the division level to deal with such incidents.
