Country's biggest cattle fair will have no horses 20.10.2017 Deccan Herald - News
For the first time, the country's largest cattle fair, to be held in Pushkar from Monday, will not witness the trade of horses this year. An order from the Rajasthan government has banned the entry of horses during the mela, set to be held between October 23 and November 4, due to a spurt in glanders disease.

Nandini Matiyani, vice-president (human resources), Wipro, and an animal rights activist, who claimed to have been attacked by a mob following the raid on an illegal abattoir in South Bengaluru on October 14, has been booked for rashing driving and causing mischief.

Attackers of animal rights activist had govt support: BJP 19.10.2017 deccanherald.com
BJP has condemned the attack on the women animal rights activists who were protesting against illegal cow slaughter earlier this week.

In a statement on Thursday, BJP Cow Welfare Cell State Convenor Siddhartha Goenka stated: "The attackers openly assaulted the animal rights activists in the presence of the Yelahanka police and a High Court appointed commissioner which indicated that the attackers had the protection of the state government".

"The BJP has every reason to make this charge because two illegal slaughterhouses - Avalahalli on Kanakapura Road and another near Bettahalli in Yelahanka - have been functioning right under the nose of the law-enforcing authorities. No action has been initiated by the law-enforcing authorities all these years," Goenka stated.

Camera trap survey shows presence of snow leopards in Arunachal 19.10.2017 Deccan Herald - News
A recent study by the World Wildlife Federation-India on snow leopards has yielded photo evidence of the elusive species in Arunachal Pradesh, a state resplendent with biodiversity and yet largely unexplored. The evidence is particularly significant, given that large natural areas in the state fall under the custodianship of local communities whose support is crucial to protect the species and its habitat. The species was photographed by a camera trap set up at Thembang, a community conserved area in the state. Only a fraction of the snow leopard habitat in the state comes under two protected areas, Dibang Biosphere Reserve and Namdapha National Park. The presence of the big cat beyond these protected areas highlights the importance of community support for conservation as well as landscape-scale conservation planning. The statewide survey, carried out by WWF-India in collaboration with the Arunachal Pradesh forest department, was conducted from March 2017, focusing on unexplored areas, a press statement ...
