Nagpur: Forest Boundaries To Be Fenced To Check Man-Animal Conflict.
In a bid to tackle man-animal conflict, the state cabinet on Tuesday approved setting up of chain link fencing at the boundaries of forests near sensitive village blocks.
Forest minister Sudhir Mungantiwar said he also proposed Rs 50 crore in the 2019-20 budget for the plan. “There was a demand from local leaders and other public representatives to address the man-animal conflict ,” he said.
