These NGO guys should be shot. They are a menace to both mankind and the causes they supposedly espouse. their only purpose in life is going to parties and talking non-sense.

Beats me why the leopards couldn't be relocated to a zoo or to even Banrghatta forest - much more controlled environment.

1>The PCCF and the Princess thought it would be better to rehabilitate them into the wild.
2>What really pisses one off is after the failure of the Bandipur experiment where one inoocent man lost his life through no fault of his . The PCCF gives permission to release the leopards in Bhadra and the NGO does it without any care for the safety of people alongwith the officer in charge.
3>The last reported news is: one leopard is still missing.They had a lot of trouble in finding where the animals were as they were not radio collared.It was also done in violation of guidelines from the center.
4>Here is the best part,none of the scientists or researchers were a part of the experiment and nor did they protest when the first experiment failed.

Why was WII, Dehradun consulted on relocation? They have a long history of successful relocation of Tigers from R'bhore to Sariska, Bandhavgarh to Panna & Corbett to Chilla.

Hand reared Big Cats loose their traditional fear of humans and generally come to realise their own strength vis-a-vis the human. The only known successful relocation of a hand reared Big Cat was that of the Tigress Tara in the Dudhwa National park by the famed Billy Arjan Singh. But then Billy introduced Tara to the wild in a very sytematic manner.
