Bhubaneswar2/7/17;: Odisha government claimed to have unravelled the ‘mysterious’ animals who had unleashed a reign of terror by going on sheep-killing spree in Niali area of Cuttack district.
It could now be conclusively construed that the sheep-killer animals are pack of wolves. These predatory carnivorous species have been spotted. There is no cause of worry for local people who had gone panicked following all kind of rumours going viral in social media, said forest and environment minister Bijoyshree Routray.
It may be recalled here that the http://english.samajalive.in/ web portal quoting the version of experts had yesterday reported on the same line as per the version’s of the mibister.
Yesterday’s report carried in the web portal had iterated the experts’ version which had interpreted it to be the act of juvenile wolves. The young wolves were learning their hunting skill in targeting the defenceless sheep in the villages of Niali block, this web portal described quoting the version of wildlife experts.
The wolves have been spotted in at least two spots in Kankadahada village (under Khorda forest division) and in Baharana village in Niali block of Cuttack wildlife division. Both the wildlife personnel and the locals have sighted the pack of about 6 wolves in both the places, said Prasant MIshra, Divisional Forest Officer, City Forest Division.
