Due to the apathy of Wild Life department the existence of wild life in Haryana is in jeopardy.

According to the data provided by Hisar Bishnoi Sabha about 125 animals, most of them deer and blue bulls (Neel Gaye), were killed during this year in various parts of state by the stray dogs and poachers.

Of these 125 about 70 were killed only in Adampur tehsil.

As the Bishnoi community loves and protects the wild animals, these animals have their natural habitat in abundance around Adampur, Fatehabad, Sirsa and Hisar.

Subhash Bishnoi, president, Hisar Bishnoi Sabha, told this correspondent here today,' We have saved dozens of deer injured by the stray dogs. Some wild animals are being treated by Bishnois at various places in and near Adampur.

The poachers are also active in this area. The Wild Life department should take stern action against the hunters.

There is an urgent need to curb the menace of stray dogs.

The rare species of wild animals, especially black deer, are facing extinction.' He further said, 'The number of rabbits, hare, fox and wolf etc. is declining fast among the small wild animals.

The govt. and social orgnisations should come forward to save them.'
