Again Leopard was shot dead by the villagers of Lohinga Kalan adjoining area of Aravali hills in Punhana block of Mewat District ( Haryana ) on 18-12-2010. OIPA in India - PFA Haryana demands strict legal action against all offenders, dismissal of DFO concerned, who failed to protect wildlife.
It would be pertinent to mention here that a Leopard was illegally captured by a Farmhouse owner in Gurgaon District, FIR was lodged in Police Station, Bhondi but untraceable report was filed by the incompetent Police, after it another female Leopard was beaten by the villagers in Mewat in the presence of Wildlife officials - Police. No action has been taken by the concerned authorities.
it may kindly be treated as notice under section 55 of the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972 to all concerned.
Wild animals needs more attention, Leopard killed again on 18-12-2010: Why and who ordered to eliminate body with melafide intention without proper postmortem from expert board - with out video recording?, integrity of all concerned officials became doubtful.

A five-year-old female leopard was recovered from a country villa in the Aravali area of Gurgaon, an official said Sunday.

“The owner of the farmhouse set a trap and caught the leopard after it ate up his dog. We have taken the anmal’s custody and will release it into forest again,” a wildlife official said.

However, the villagers who informed the officials were angry as they said country villa owners have encroached on the forest area.They said the Aravali area is a forest area and wild animals are always present there. “The farmhouses have come up illegally and human beings have encroached the forest area. They should understand this and should not catch leopards,” said Ram Pal, a local. In March 2008 also, wildlife officials caught a leopard from the area and few months after the incident a leopard died in an accident on a national highway.

“Most owners don’t live in their farmhouses and come on weekends only. Leopard sighting is normal but they never hurt anyone,” the wildlife official said.

Family of leopards killed one of his pet dogs; but he had no permission to lay trap

A farmhouse owner finds himself in trouble for trapping a leopard without permission within his premises on the Aravalli Hills in Tikli village on Sohna Road.

A pair of leopards, along with their cubs, had entered Dr Ajeet Gupta’s farmhouse (F-14) in the Aravalli Hills on Friday night, apparently to prey on his pet dogs. The leopard family killed one of the dogs and left its half-eaten carcass behind. The leopards returned on Saturday night for more prey, but the female got caught in a trap laid by the farmhouse owner.

Abdul Rehman, a domestic help at the farmhouse, said the male leopard and the cubs sat outside the cage all night trying to rescue the trapped mother. Yogender Yadav, owner of another farmhouse in the area, said the leopard family had never attacked humans and it was wrong on the part of the doctor to have kept his dogs in the open, thus attracting the attention of the big cats.

A five-year-old female leopard was recovered from a country villa in the Aravali area of Gurgaon, an official said Sunday.
“The owner of the farmhouse set a trap and caught the leopard after it ate up his dog. We have taken the animal’s custody and will release it into forest again,” a wildlife official said.
However, the villagers who informed the officials were angry as they said country villa owners have encroached on the forest area.They said the Aravali area is a forest area and wild animals are always present there. “The farmhouses have come up illegally and human beings have encroached the forest area.

Family of leopards killed one of his pet dogs; but he had no permission to lay trap
A farmhouse owner finds himself in trouble for trapping a leopard without permission within his premises on the Aravalli Hills in Tikli village on Sohna Road.
A pair of leopards, along with their cubs, had entered Dr Ajeet Gupta’s farmhouse (F-14) in the Aravalli Hills on Friday night, apparently to prey on his pet dogs. The leopard family killed one of the dogs and left its half-eaten carcass behind. The leopards returned on Saturday night for more prey, but the female got caught in a trap laid by the farmhouse owner.
Abdul Rehman, a domestic help at the farmhouse, said the male leopard and the cubs sat outside the cage all night trying to rescue the trapped mother. Yogender Yadav, owner of another farmhouse in the area, said the leopard family had never attacked humans and it was wrong on the part of the doctor to have kept his dogs in the open, thus attracting the attention of the big cats. Records show Dr Gupta had not sought permission from forest officials to lay the trap to capture the animals, listed under Schedule I of the Wildlife Act. After the locals, who consider the leopards lucky for their village, reported the matter, the district administration and People For Animals, an NGO, rushed to the farmhouse to free the animal.
The forest officials too find themselves in trouble for not bothering to book Dr Gupta under relevant sections for trapping an endangered animal without permission. They, however, rushed the leopard, which had got injured trying to set itself free, to Sadrana animal hospital near Jhajjar on Sunday afternoon, said Conservator of Forests K C Meena.
“We have asked the Deputy Commissioner of Gurgaon to lodge an FIR against the farmhouse owner as well as the forest and wildlife officers responsible,” said Keshni Anand, Haryana Principal Secretary (Forests and Wildlife).
Gurgaon DC Rajender Kataria too confirmed that an FIR would be lodged against Dr Gupta soon.
The leopard was released into the wild later in the day.
The Aravallis, natural abode to many wild animals, has been plagued by illegal constructions and mining of late.

The International Organisation for Animal Protection - OIPA in India and People for Animals (PFA) Haryana in the opinion that this leopard was forcefully captured adopting illegal methods, where as this animals never entered in any village nor in a city and she is not a man eater even then why she was captured from her natural habitat?. Naresh Kadyan spoken with the CWLW Haryana for strict legal action against farm house owner along with all other involved in capturing, animal be rehabilitated back in their natural habitat along with her cubs, proper arrangements should be made to protect wildlife over there in Aravali hills region, tainted Wildlife officials be placed under suspension including District Gurgaon head, Wildlife Inspector as well, fresh census should be prepared of all kinds of birds and wild animals in Aravali hills area.
It would be pertinent to mention here that all farm houses should be demolished at once to protect wildlife in the Aravali hills area because wild animals needs attention / top priority now but high profile peoples enjoying at the very heavy cost / loss of nature, wildlife and environments. For what purpose these farm houses and which kinds of activities run over there and who is responsible for all loss to our environment, habitat as well?????
Hence it may be treated as a legal notice to the Chief Wild Life Warden Haryana as per legal provisions under section 55 of the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972 and leopard killer of Karnal and Jind also be booked as per law of the land as we don't believe in committees including tainted / irresponsible officials who failed to perform their official duties be involved to inquire the whole episodes??????????? All matters should be handed over to the Wildlife Crime Control Bureau at once to investigate, there might be many more wild animal species be kept in the rescue centers managed by NGO's needs attention / monitoring as well.
Why State Wildlife Advisory Board was not yet constituted, Hon. District Wildlife Wardens as well??????????
Aravali hills forest area be declared as a National park - Wildlife Sanctuary and remove all kinds of activities / constructions / buildings / farm houses / mining.

Ms. Sukanya Kadyan of People for Animals (PFA) Haryana.
All encroachments and farm houses should be demolished at once to protect wildlife in Aravali hills area and this innocent female leopard be released at once again in that area from where she was illegally captured, strict legal action be taken against all offenders including owner of the farm house, wildlife officials as well who gave cage to the owner of farm house and their senior District level authorities failed to perform their official duties / responsibilities, Farm house owner passport should be seized and information be given to all Air ports, not to allow him to leave India, FIR No. 111 dated 12-7-2010 has been lodged with the Police station, Bhondsi but till date accused's are not arrested not encroachments demolished.
A two - three years old leopard was attacked and severely beaten early on Friday morning by the villagers of Ahman Bans near Firozpur Jhirka in Mewat district.
The leopard had strayed into the village in search of food, where it was spotted by villagers who cornered it worrying that it might attack them or their cattle.
Trying to get away, the leopard attacked the mob, injuring two villagers, Asif and Usmaan.
After that, the villagers attacked the leopard with lathis. After beating it, they locked the badly bruised animal in a room.
Police and forest officials were informed about the incident and reached the spot almost three hours later. But they did not have a tranquilliser gun, and could not sedate the leopard. A gun was brought from Bhiwani only after noon, said a forest official at the site.
When the conservator (wildlife), Gurgaon circle, Satyabhan, was called at 3pm, to ascertain the state of the injured animal, he said: "We are on our way, the animal is only injured and not dead. The leopard has been shifted to the veterinary hospital in Sardana near Sultanpur."
On the other hand, Chotu Ram Jotriwal, chief conservator (wildlife), was clueless about why such man-animal conflicts were taking place repeatedly in the eco-sensitive Aravali Hills. "We are looking into the matter," said Jotriwal, when he was asked about the incident.
No case had been registered against the mob which beat the endangered animal at the time of going to press. Doctors meanwhile said the leopard was undergoing treatment and that his condition was stable.
Said a senior forest official: "Ever since the Supreme Court imposed a blanket ban on mining in the Aravali Hills, the leopard population has grown. However, the loss of their habitat because of interference from the locals and a lack of food (smaller herbivores) and water in the hills force the leopards to come down into the villages in search of easy prey like dogs and cattle. In order to curb such incidents in the future, it is necessary to enrich their habitat."
Gurgaon Police gave clean hand to all accused and submitted their untraceable report in this case FIR No. 111 dated 12-7-2010 which was lodged with the Police station, Bhondsi, where as on 12-11-2010 another female leopard was injured by the villagers in Mewat in the presence of local Police and guardian Wildlife officials, shame on them. We support OIPA in India demands, strict legal action against all accused villagers along with tainted officials and immediate release of female leopard in her natural habitat after recovery.
Again Leopard was shot dead by the villagers of Lohinga Kalan adjoining area of Aravali hills in Punhana block of Mewat District ( Haryana ) on 18-12-2010. OIPA in India - PFA Haryana demands strict legal action against all offenders, dismissal of DFO concerned, who failed to protect wildlife.
It would be pertinent to mention here that a Leopard was illegally captured by a Farmhouse owner in Gurgaon District, FIR was lodged in Police Station, Bhondi but untraceable report was filed by the incompetent Police, after it another female Leopard was beaten by the villagers in Mewat in the presence of Wildlife officials - Police.
The International Organisation for Animal Protection - OIPA in India and People for Animals (PFA) Haryana approached WCCB and Project Tiger team to intervene in the crime investigation on 18-12-2010 evening and concerned authorities were requested to conduct postmortem by a wildlife expert Doctors team under video recording cover but local Police and Wildlife officials failed to do so, formal postmortem was conducted by a local Veterinary Surgeon, no bullet were found in the body and then quickly body was destroyed adopting un-professional methods in the premises of Punhana Veterinary Hospital, where as VS never conducted leopard postmortem before and all concerned officials integrity became doubtful. All concerned authorities passing bucks each other to hush up the crime against wildlife. As per OIPA in India information illegal arms were used by the villagers to shot dead scheduled one animal and local Police lodged FIR against unidentified persons, where as eyewitnesses disclosed name of the shooters. Killed Leopard carcass was not burned scientifically, bones are still there, not burned at all
Hence OIPA in India - PFA Haryana placed this open notice before all concerned authorities as per provisions and welcome the investigation by WCCB officials instead of local Police, Wildlife officials as well. It is further submitted that Wildlife Department, Haryana don't have zeal to protect their wildlife because it is past practice to handle wild animals in the State to shoot the animals instead of adopting safe techniques, no safe measures were adopted, introduced to keep wild animals in their natural habitat, illegal activities, encroachments are still going on to disturb wildlife.
People killed leopard in the presence of all concerned guardian of wild animals in village Khedigujran, these offenders can be easily identified in the photographs violated the different sections 9, 39 read with 51 of Wildlife Protection Act, 1972 along the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960 and 428 - 429, 120-B IPC etc., investigation of all these crimes may kindly be handed over to the WCCB ( Govt. of India ), necessary training, equipments for rescue operation of wild animals, vehicles, infirmaries facilities should be provided to all field functionaries along with the strong steps should be taken to keep intact natural habitat of wildlife, so that wild animal - human conflicts should be avoided with out any further delay. FIR No. 26 dated 13-1-2011 has been lodged with the Faridabad Police by Naresh Kadyan against all offenders including local guardian of wild animal, who failed to protect big cat and to perform their official duty - responsibility.
Leopards in India are undoubtedly the new big cat on the road to extinction. It is the least attended big cat as the entire thrust is on the tigers. It is however correct that with the launch of project tiger, all other animals will also be protected. But indeed Leopards are the most ignored and affected big cats.
Why leopards are in danger?
Leopards are the worst sufferers of loss of habitats and illicit wildlife trade.These big cats are most adaptable in nature and are known for living near human habitations. In substance the worst affected forest parts are the forests on the periphery of the preserved areas which have suffered the effect of large scale deforestation.The ever soaring human population has adversely affected these areas and usurped these areas for purposes of habitations.Leopards inhabit preserved areas like national parks and wildlife sanctuaries also besides peripheries of preserved areas.
The leopards are forced to adapt to live in forest fringes because of competition with tigers which are much more powerful than leopards.Besides the loss of habitat ,leopards are the target of rising illicit wildlife trade. With the tiger number dwindling in wild areas ,the demand is supplied by making leopards as the target.These two main issues are the reasons for declining leopard population.
Why no project leopard is needed ?
The trend of creating exclusive project for each an every main animal is not correct approach.First it was project tiger in 1973 and project elephant in 1992.If this approach continues then we will have more than 100 exclusive projects with inter-related and overlapping objectives and this would create a complete confusion in the wildlife world. There will be numerous authorities with parallel mandates leading to blame games. No one would take the responsibility for failures and the whole purpose shall be defeated.
What needs to be done ?
1)The habitat of these big cats need to be protected so far as possible.
2) A swift and efficient redressal mechanism should be implemented in case of livestock killing in these big cats.
3) Similar mechanism is needed in case of human killing by these cats and amount of compensation should be reasonable not a meager as the tendency in our country.
4)People should be educated about the value of these animals for our own survival .
5) Forest staff should be motivated and properly trained. The department should have all necessary equipments to handle cases of man-animal conflict.
If we take these necessary steps then nothing like project leopard is required. What is required is sincere efforts in right direction not the creation of project for each and every animal. So a committee be set up at once and Naresh Kadyan services should be utilized.
Grievance Registration Number is : PRSEC/E/2011/04560 with the HE the President of India office on dated 26-3-2011 by Naresh Kadyan.
Leopards are being killed by the villagers every where in India and concerned guardian wildlife officials failed to perform their official duties, protect these wild animals as well. It is true that wild animal and human conflict is became serious problem for us but we can't wait, we have to find out the solutions and citizens of India be aware d about importance of our wildlife and they should be trained to handle the situations because killing is not a solution, where as all wildlife officials also be well trained and equipped to rescue wild animals.
Hence directions may kindly be issued to all concerned to find out the solutions of this man wild animals conflict, offenders be booked and tried by fast track courts, investigated by the Wildlife Crime Control Bureau.
Arrest village Khedi Gujran leopard killers, FIR lodged with PS sector - 55, Faridabad.
