Leopard Poaching and Seizure

29th May, 2003

There are definite indications that the leopard is facing an increased threat from the skin trade. As many as 98 leopards have been lost to poaching in India in the last five months alone!

WPSI personnel assisted the Haryana Police at Samalkha with the interrogation of the men arrested on 22 May with 7 leopard skins and 18 otter skins. The traders said that the skins had been obtained from Uttaranchal and were to be taken to Delhi. The arrested men also said that they knew some of the 16 poachers who were arrested last year in connection with leopard and bear poaching in the State of Andhra Pradesh in South India last year. Some of these poachers were from Samalkha, while the others were from Katni in Madhyra Pradesh.

It is clear that poaching is now being co-ordinated on a national scale.
