Niali block stumbled upon the animals resting under the cover of a bush and shrubs

Niali:9/7/17:The residents of Dihasithala village under Sasanapada gram panchayat under Niali block today stumbled upon the animals resting under the cover of a bush and shrubs in an agriculture field. A pack of four to five animals were spotted. However people managed to capture the youngest of the group. The adult animals managed to escape, said local villagers.

The animal that was caught today was a young jackal. It’s mainly a scavenging animal that feasts on carcasses. The jackal species have nothing to do with the ongoing sheep death. The sheep death is being triggered by pack of juvenile wolves who are learning their hunting skill by targeting docile animals like sheep, said Manoj Kumar Mahapatra, Khorda Divisional Forest Officer and a wildlife expert.   

Still people should not be panicked. They need to take care of the safety of the sheep by keeping them in covered and protected shed to save them from wolves’ attack, said the official.
