Nagpur: A 12-month-old male tiger cub was run over on Monday morning in Pindkepar forest by a speeding freight train heading towards Gondia from Ballarshah.
This is the fifth tiger death in Ballarshah-Gondia section under South East Central Railway (SECR). Not only tigers, over two dozen leopard, sloth bear, gaur, and multiple herbivore deaths have been recorded on the tracks between 2008 and 2018 period, data for which is available.
The sub-adult tiger is one of the male cubs of tigress T-14 from Nagzira. T-14 escaped with other two female cubs while crossing
the tracks. The incident occurred early morning near Pindkepar forest, which falls under Goregaon range in Gondia division.
According to forest officials, post mortem prima facie revealed that spine of the cub was broken due to the severe impact and there were internal injuries too. The cub also lost his right leg.
Earlier, three six-month-old tiger cubs were mowed down by a speeding train on November 15, 2018 night on Chanda Fort-Gondia railway line at Chichpalli.
As per forest department record, more than 50 wild animals — including 5 tigers, 4 sloth bears, 4 leopards, 4 hyenas, 4 gaurs, several wild boars, nilgais, and deer — have died on the tracks between 2008 and 2018. Many such deaths also go unrecorded.
Senior forest officials said, “After three cubs were knocked dead in 2018, a survey was conducted to suggest underpasses in most vulnerable forested ranges of Mamla, Junona, Sindewahi, Chichpalli, Talodhi, Balapur, and Nagbhid in Bramhapuri and Chandrapur divisions.”
“We had identified 19 railway poles where trains should run with caution of 40 kmph. These patches fall in Junona, Mamla, Babupeth, Lohara, Mindala, and Bramhapuri. A similar survey needs to be done along the same track in Navegaon-Nagzira landscape,” they said.
“The Gondia-Ballarshah line was fully commissioned in 1999, but no mitigation measures were taken. It is high time SECR acts now. In years to come, the number of trains and speed will increase and apparently affect more number of animals,” said state wildlife board member Kishor Rithe.
Forest officials said, “We have been communicating to SECR since 2012, but no efforts have been taken by the Railways to mitigate the conflict. The suggestions by a state wildlife board sub-committee, headed by PCCF (wildlife), have also been taken lightly by the SECR.”
“It has been observed that a lot of wasted food is thrown along the tracks by passengers attracting wild animals. This is one of the reasons why animals come along the tracks. The Railways needs to take extra efforts to keep tracks clean along dense forest patches,” says Bandu Dhotre, president of Eco-Pro.
Green activist Shrikant Deshpande has decided to file a public interest litigation against the Indian Railways.
“In June 2018, then MoEFCC secretary CK Mishra had pointed out to the Railway Board that existing tracks passing through eco-sensitive zones should be modified as per Wildlife Institute of India (WII) guidelines. However, Railways has been neglecting all directives,” said conservationist Prafulla Bhamburkar.
* On April 14, 2013, a tiger cub was killed while another was maimed on Chanda Fort–Gondia railway line near Kelzar
* On November 15, 2018, 3 tiger cubs knocked dead near Chichpalli in Chandrapur
* From August 27, 2008, to November 15, 2018, 24 wild animals have died on tracks in Chandrapur district alone
