The area where they were captured roaming about is near the Girnar Darwaza, some 3.5 kms inside the town’s boundary.
The Gir National Park is in the Junagadh district.
The residents have a reason to panic because just a few months ago, between March and May, lions killed three people in Amreli.
Amreli is to the north-east of Gir national park. As recently as on Tuesday, a shepherd was attacked by three lions in Amreli. He was hospitalised in Savarkundla. In another incident, an old lady was killed by lions in Gir Somnath. The lions roaming incident has sparked the man-animal conflict debate too. As per a data, 40 per cent of India’s forest cover has been degraded in the last decade.
