    Man-Animal Conflicts

    Bogged down by growing incidents of man-animal conflicts, the Assam government has launched anti depredation squads across 15 major human-wildlife conflict districts in order to mitigate the problem and to ensure safety of both humans and wildlife.

    The Forest Department is engaging specially trained personnel – 50 frontline staff trained to handle conflict situations will be deputed for this purpose. 100 more staff will be trained in the coming days.

    The anti depredation squad will be well equipped with all required logistics required for mitigating the conflict. Currently, 150 numbers of 12 Bore pump action guns and 15,000 rounds of rubber bullet ammunition will be at the disposal of the squads.

     Incidents of man-animal conflicts are on the rise in the state. With growing deforestations and invasion of animal territories, animals are attacking human habitats. Apart from checking to reduce conflicts, these squads must spread awareness on peaceful coexistence between man and animal. The people of the state must also cooperate with the squads to bring down the number of casualties.
