    Default Sloth bear killed in accident. KSTDC says its the First!!

    Quote by Deccan Herald, Bangalore Edition dated 14 Sep 2010:

    Sloth bear

    A sloth bear has been killed by the speeding Karnataka State Tourism Development Corporation. This according to the department is first such incident, where a tourist vehicle has killed an animal.

    This incident seems to have happened in the National park and not in the Bannergatta enclosed park!! Looks like it is beginning to happen here. Please see article reproduced below:

    Highly unfortunate and utterly irresponsible.

    I have seen these buses driving fast inside the forest and no wonder that a Sloth bear is killed. Even an agile animal like tiger has been killed in the past in bandipur. Elephants have been hit.

    To dismiss it by saying it is the first such incident is a very irresponsible statement. Does that mean anyone can get away by saying that they it is the first time they have killed an endangered species. There has been no mention about action taken. I believe no body is thinking about ensuring that systemic solutions are in place to stop these road kills.
