NDTV Published on Oct 3, 2018
Carcasses of 10 more lions have been found in the forests of Gir in Gujarat, a week after a lioness and a cub died. 21 lions have died in Gir in the last 18 days alone. The rising number of lion deaths in the national park in such a short span of time is a cause of worry for forest officials and conservationists. Gir is home to India's entire population of around 500 wild Asiatic lions.
