At times wild animals like Gaur, Deer and Leopard stray into locality from Jaldapara National Park. They are rescued by Forest Dept. and released into the wild.
Zoo Authority of India proposed to relocate strayed animals to South Khayerbari. Once the green signal is received from the State Forest Department, the modalities of the process will be finalised.
Wildlife count in Jaldapara is increasing every year. There are frequent fights amongst wild animals for partners, also, infrastructure is not adequate to keep wild animals at bay.
On the backdrop, the proposal has been welcomed by the State Forest Department.
Work is going on at South Khayerbari for Leopard Safari. Gaurs, Deers and Rhinos grazing will be an added attraction for South Khayerbari.
