Humans killing animals - Hill fox - killed in road accident at Nainital

Another victim of human negligence. This photo is of a Hill Fox (Red fox) Vulpus vulpus montana from Nainital highway, which is a hill station in the Uttarakhand Himalayas, India. The roads are mountainous and winding. The vehicle speed usually is around 30 kmph only. Still, drivers do not care for crossing wildlife. These accidents occur especially in the early morning hours, when these otherwise nocturnal animals would be returning home before day break.

Cruelty to Wildlife - TIGER chained like a DOG

Tiger chained like a dog at Bangkok Zoo
I took this photo myself. So, it is not fake!
This tiger does not realise its strength as it is zoo bred. This is one of the many animals being treated so at Bangkok Zoo, Samutprakarn, Bangkok, Thailand.
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act in India even dictates minimum chain length for dogs! And this is the case elsewhere. For more of these photos, keep following this blog.

Road kills - An accidental wildlife crime which can be avoided

Monitor lizard road kill on Sitabani road
How many animals do we kill due to our overspeed and negligence? These animals were there before we made roads. Allow them to cross first. This photo was taken in a highway through the forest near Corbett National Park, India. It is a monitor lizard (Veranus) not able to cross the road before getting hit by a vehicle, eventhough it was early in the morning and the traffic was very less. I will be posting more of these soon to show that these are not rare occurrences. Follow this blog for mor proof.

Snow leopard photographed in Nandadevi Biosphere Reserve

Snow leopard has been photographed using a camera trap near Malari in Nanda Devi National Park, Uttarakhand, India. The photograph was taken on 10th April 2011, said Mr.B.K.Gangte, the Director of the reserve. Though several indirect evidences and direct sightings were there in the past, this is the first photographic evidence. Conservation efforts in this region has helped snow leopards to freely roam in their once forgotten territory. Blue sheep or Bharal is the main prey base, which has increased in the recent years due to anti-poaching activities by the forest department.
