Not so dear deers in Cuttack park
There are exactly 103 deers in the park right now. The park spreading over just two acres has become too cringy for the deers. While the number of deers keep growing every year, there is no possibility of increasing the park area it being sorrounded by houses on all sides. It is located in close vicinity to the houses. Often the deers get hurt due to fights among themselves or accidents. Three is not an inch of grass in the park. And the deers too face food scarcity.
Sometime back, a plan was mooted to shift the park to CDA locality. A 5-acre plot too was identified in Sector-10 of CDA for shifting the park. The work has stopped there. The local corporator of CMC Pallavi who stays near the park however said that she would initiate steps to shift the park soon. But for lack of efforts by the Forest department and the CMC, the animals who do not have the capacity keep on suffering endlessly.
