Maneaters must be put down, not put away in crowded zoos

It is neither economically feasible nor biologically necessary to rehabilitate every maneater in overburdened zoos. When a big cat cant hunt its natural prey, its time is up. #India #Environment #Conservation #Bhandipore #Widlife #Bandipur Tiger Reserve #Wildlife Conservation Society-India
