Vadodara: Forest Department has
intensified its search to locate a lioness which has abandoned
her two three-month-old cubs in Khambhla round in Visavadar
forest range, Assistant Conservator of Forest L M Kandoria
Talking over phone, Kandoria said, "both these
cubs were located in the forest during patrolling by the
the Forest Department staff and were found in the same
locality for the past three days."
On learning about this, R Katara division Forest Range
Officer (DFO) rushed to the spot and made arrangements for
milk and mutton for the cubs. Under the care of a veterinary
doctor, food is being provided to the cubs.
Katara said that the cubs are under
constant care of the veterinary doctor as there are weak.
Sasangir, the nearby forest, is the only abode of Asiatic
lions, he added.
Hunt has been intensified in the forest to locate the
cubs` mother, Katara said adding that the both cubs have been
left in the open area of the forest.
Now they are thinking to set up a cage for keeping
both the cubs in it. This is being done as per the experts`
advice, because lioness could come near the cage in search of
her cubs and they can be reunited," the DFO added.
For the last three days milk mutton is being fed to
these cubs. It was not known as to why the lioness abandoned
her pubs there.
