‘Life Sentence’ To Three Asiatic Lions For Murder Of Humans

Updated on 7 July, 2016 at 4:39 pm By

In India, three Asiatic lions have been given ‘life sentence’– to be kept in cage for their entire life–for killing three humans in Gujarat’s Gir sanctuary.

Recently, Asiatic lions from the sanctuary attacked six humans, of which three people– a 13-year-ol boy, a 50-year-old woman and a 61-year-old man — were mauled to death.

Out of 17 lions who were ‘suspects’ in the murder case, the three were found guilty. The verdict was taken after analysing their pug marks and faeces during a 25-day captivity.

“The three–one adult male and two sub-adult female lions– were found to have turned man-eaters as human remains were found from the excreta of these three lions,” Chief Conservator of Forest for Junagadh division, A P Singh, told PTI.

The endangered species population has dwindled due to encroachment on its settlements by humans. There are approximately 400 Asiatic lions left in the wild.

Wildlife officials in India say that Gir National Park, where almost all these lions live, can only accommodate 270 of them, leading some prides to venture outside its boundaries.

Earlier, Supreme Court had ordered Gujarat to relocate some of its lions to other states, but the state hasn’t complied yet.
