The Indian wilderness is disappearing at an alarming rate. As large areas of forested land are plundered, the animals find themselves in a shrinking habitat. Narrow tracts of wooded country, which served as corridors for animal movement between larger forested areas are being encroached upon. This loss in green cover has forced animals to ‘trespass’ through human habitation in their efforts to move between contiguous forests. The stage was set for a continuing conflict between men and animals. Unfortunately for the animals their fate was sealed even before this conflict erupted. Unless immediate remedial measures are implemented, the annihilation of a large number of species is inevitable.
