    1. deforestation in the name of plantations 2. inefficient wildlife department from knowledge to practicality. 3. insufficient funds allocated for the department and no national plan to protect or green cover and wild life. This is the most valuable thing we have in our country. Not BMW or Mercedeces or luxury housing or bungalows.

    Sympathy for leopard. Tea plantation workers are attacked by leopards and wasps. Some even died. No action so far.
