Now fishermen will chase away crocs
"Crocs mostly stray into human settlements during the breeding season triggering man-crocodile conflict," Divisional Forest Officer, Rajnagar Mangrove (Wildlife) Forest Division, Manoj Kumar Mahapatra, said.
"Last year we experimented by deploying skilled groups on contractual pay roll. It was a success in bringing down the intensity of man-crocodile conflict. The service groups have been redeployed to keep the crocodiles at bay," he said. This year crocodiles have killed two persons and injured two others. The reptiles were also killed in retaliatory attacks by humans.
