How to Avoid Leopards Venturing into Human Habitats

  1. 1. How to Avoid Leopards venturing into Human Habitats http://www.campstream.net
  2. 2. 1 . Leopards often take up residence in croplands and tea-gardens. 2 . They are not usually inclined to attack people; on the contrary, they avoid people. 3 . Wild carnivores may attack in selfdefence, and, therefore, it is advisable to avoid provoking them. http://www.campstream.net
  3. 3. 4 . Mere sighting of a leopard in the vicinity of human habitations does not necessarily mean that the animal has strayed from a forest and needs to be captured. 5 . Arbitrary removal of leopards could lead to increased conflict. The space vacated by a captured animal will soon be occupied by another leopard. . http://www.campstream.net
  4. 4. 6. The focus should be on long term solutions. These include better sanitation measures including proper garbage disposal in villages and towns so that feral pig and dog populations are kept under check, and do not attract wild carnivores. Providing proper toilet facilities in rural areas would go a long way in reducing incidences of accidental encounters with leopards. 7. Farmers should be made aware that livestock sheds should be strong, robust and leopard proof. http://www.campstream.net
