    Default Cheetal chewing Plastic packet

    Dear All,
    I came across this sight in Bandipur Tiger Reserve, near the main road. This cheetal had found a wafers packet and was chewing it. Herbivores like to chew these wafers packets - carelessly thrown away by tourists - due to the salt content. At times they are known to swallow the plastic packet and die.

    This image shows very clearly how we have been affecting our forests and wildlife... They dont need us to survive... If only isolation were possible...

    This is very unfortunate. We are replacing the natural resources with artificial and harmful elements.
