Sad that the kids take the brunt.
431 people per square km is likely putting some pressure on the old cats in Kashmir.

Our world remains a dangerous place to live, whether you live in New York City or otherwise.

And as it has been before in India and now ,some people think that the Nature gods have gotten another sacrifice and wont do anything to prevent rhe next. And they will criminalize the hunters sent by authorities on a later time to prevemt the next one.

Yet the same paper bashes hunters as its always done.

Yes it is, here we have several people attacked by bears each year.



Then we have several tourists stomped by Bison in Yellowstone each year too.

Well, I think getting stomped by a bison when you travel to a national park to see it is a bit less problematic than being dragged out of your own home by a leopard. One attack is far easier to avoid. (Yet somehow many people seem to not know how to avoid it...)

Sad that many places put more value on the predators than the people that have to live with them. As far as the bison stomping people each year, they’re just helping clean up the gene pool a little bit as many of them are caused by people being stupid!

With 1.3,1.4 Billion people,all Wildlife is under pressure,we have a lot of Leopards in the country and the wily Cat knows when and where to get its food,people become careless,leave Children out side and Tragedy Strikes.We had a similar incident nearby,without indoor Plumbing,people use the Outdoors and in squatting position are mistaken by the Cat,once this cat know how easy it is to Kill people,it becomes unstoppable.The only way one can avert these tragedies is to keep a lot off Dogs,packs of Semi Domesticated Dogs keep this Cat away.We provide the Dogs with Food and shelter and a lot of Solar Lights,the Dogs hang around all night long.
As far as putting these Cats down,the paper work and the Flak one has to face is not really worth it.
PS;One fact i failed to mention is Poaching of prey species is really increasing,these Cats are running out of all their Natural Prey,so what are they gonna eat,that is one of the most common reason that these cats are visiting Human Settlements in search of a Meal.then Shit happens

here amoung the local red necks with the fact that there are firearms in most houses, home invasions-robberies are few and far between and with any problems with dangerous wild animals, SSS would come into play. shoot-shevel-shut up. a number of years ago a large bear was acting very badly to a few locals and the game wardens could not trap it out, so it just went away under rule SSS.

270Guy But in my humble opinion we in India are only focusing on conservation and not wildlife management. These are two different things and because of conservation the game numbers have increased relatively but unfortunately we have lost out on their habitat and prey base which is the core of protecting any species.Moreover the present government is only focusing on development and we are losing alot of green cover. The issue of man-animal conflict will be on the rise. Also because of development and rise in population eventually there will be a day our children would not be able to enjoy the nature anymore.
Everyday there are reports of man-animal conflicts in India. We have just trapped approximately 200 leopards in the state of Gujarat alone ! Poor guys will spend the rest of their lives in a 8x8 feet enclosure. We need to open up hunting and learn from Africa how to do game management. Make money and put it for conservation. Just my two cents.

Sadly India has gone the “preservationist” route and not the “conservationists“ route . Hunters are true conservationist , the wise use of wildlife resources.
Absolutely correct. Unfortunately just a few hours ago there was a human kill by a leopard in the state of Gujarat.

Who is gonna bell the Game Management Cat,take it up with the Authorities and one gets into trouble,getting Wild Boar and Blue Bull declared Vermin when Farmers{yours truly included} stopped Farming because predation of Crops by these was two & that has finished of the viability of farming was in itself a Battle. Uttarakand is the only state which has allowed it.Punjab issues permits from 1st October till 15th March.I know of one Southern State where permits are issued.Blue Bulls one can see feeding on Dust Bins around Delhi,all over Haryana. Same is the case with Monkeys.
The leopards/tigers trapped are either sent to rescue centers or relocated,a Relocated Cat is one of the most Dangerous Cat,its lost its home range and is confused,and then Human Animal Conflict comes,and the Animal will always lose,Zoos are getting over stocked,we could export some of these to other countries to reduce the Stocks in Zoos or Rescue centers,some enterprising people in Forest Department released Big Cats from Zoos into Hills,they dont fear Humans,there is a Video on YouTube of a Juvenile Leopard playing with people in Himachal.
Till the time the Government learns the difference between Conservation and Management Wild Life is doomed in India

i understand firearms are mostly a no-no or greatly limited to people in thoses countries, here any animal that is about to or soon try to eat you can be killed by any means, that inclulds dogs, farm animals and wild animal and snakes. there are many places in the U.S.A. that it is wise to have a firearm on your person or close by. one of these firearms is very close to me if i,m going where things could get hairy. colt m-4 in .223, rem 1100 12ga 3" mag(slugs-buckshot) springfield .45 auto.

To own a fire arm in India is difficult as the licensing process is very strict and lengthy. Also a fire arm is ten times more expensive than the US. A S&W 617 would cost you $10,000. That also a used handgun. Now you get an idea of the cost

i have seen it in many countries, it seems only the rich or well connected get to hunt or own firearms for hunting and self defence. i can,t imagion watching one of your children getting killed -eaten by a animal the state values more than a human life.

@Bapu
Question:
Hunting aside. What are actual shooting clubs and sport shooting associations in India? What kind of guns they use for their sport activities? There is ISSF olympic team, so it means air guns, 22lr, and 12 GA for clay targets.
Is there issf 300 meters classic rifle?
Is there IPSC national organisation or something similar?

Actually it doesnt happen (often).

In such circumstances when human - wildlife conflict exists, in a country without regulated game menagment and hunting in place - in those places wildlife loses by: poisoning, poaching, illegal guns, wires, traps, etc

Hey everyone..rookie mistake here. Packing to leave tomorrow and I have no idea JNB policy for bringing I cigarettes. Yes I know a smoker, plan on taking 4 cartons if able. Any advice please. Will be greeted by Mr X to ease custom’s hassle. Thanks in advance !
Hi,

Glade to hear from you and that you have kept me in mind.

I hope all is well and the hunting has been good.

Everything is fairly good.

The 2 fellows that I had lined up for this great hunt opportunity have backed out.

I'm in the process of purchasing a new house and having knee surgery, or surgeries depending on the left knee MRI, hopefully I can get back to Africa as early as 2024.
I'm concerned about Australia's indigenous species that are being killed by feral cats. Is anyone aware of any hunts I can joining to go to Australia to take a few shots at feral cats.
