22 August 2007

A complete leopard skeleton was seized by the Uttarakhand Forest Department on 16th August from Silogi village in Tehri Garhwal. Five men were arrested.

Assisted by the Wildlife Protection Society of India (WPSI), Forest officials recovered the skeleton of a leopard that had been shot a year ago by two of the accused. During interrogation, they confessed to having shot other wild animals in the past. The remaining three accused, including a primary school teacher, used to carry the body parts to buyers.

On 21st August, a team led by the DFO of Kalsi, assisted by WPSI, seized over three thousand mongoose hair paint brushes from Vikas Nagar, near Dehradun. One person, hailing from Dehradun district, was arrested. He confessed to having procured the brushes from Sherkot, near Bijnore.

Both these seizures were guided by Mr. Paramjit Singh, Uttarakhands Director of Anti-Poaching operations.
