Crocodiles in Gujarat
Mugger attacks have increased drastically in the last few years in Gujarat, thus intensifying the conflict and increasing negative attitudes among the local residents. Of the 42 mugger attacks reported in India in 2014, nearly 24 attacks occurred in Gujarat resulting in 12 human deaths, and the remaining severely injured/ permanently handicapped. Human Crocodile Conflicts (HCC) in Gujarat continues unabated, especially in Vadodara and Bharuch districts. The untrained wildlife/forest managers, while employing unifocal and ineffective treatments of the conflict, are unable to manage the conflict properly. This situation needs urgent attention.
