Forest Dept Hunts Tourist Who Harassed Lion

Gujarat: A manhunt is underway in Amreli after a video capturing a tourist’s dangerous encounter with a lion in Gir National Park went viral on social media. The incident, filmed at night, highlights the growing issue of lion-teasing in the protected area and has sparked outrage among wildlife activists and park officials.

The disturbing video shows a car stopping within the park, its headlights illuminating a majestic lion. A young man, identified only as “daredevil” by some online commentators, then emerges from the vehicle and walks towards the lion, seemingly attempting to film a social media clip. Another person in the car documents the entire sequence.

Forest Department Condemns, Launches Manhunt:

This blatant disregard for wildlife regulations and potential danger has drawn strong condemnation. Forest officials confirmed an alarming rise in lion-teasing incidents, with individuals posting close encounters online. They have initiated an investigation to identify the youth in the video and pursue legal action.

“Teasing lions is not just illegal, it’s incredibly dangerous,” a forest department spokesperson stated. “These are wild animals, and their behavior is unpredictable. Such actions put not only the individual but also the lion at risk.”

Wildlife Activists Demand Strict Action:

Wildlife activists echoed these concerns, emphasizing the potential consequences of such behavior. “This is a clear violation of wildlife protection laws and puts the entire pride at risk,” said a representative from a local wildlife conservation group. “We urge the forest department to take strict action against this individual and anyone else who engages in such irresponsible activities.”
