Bear Attack in South Kashmir, 60 Year Elderly Man Critical

An elderly man, identified as Gull Mohd Dangroo, aged 60, residing in Lessu Larnoo area of South Kashmir’s Anantnag district, was injured in a bear attack on Friday. According to officials, the wild bear attacked Dangroo, leaving him with injuries on his face, neck, and arm.

After the attack, Dangroo was promptly taken to the Primary Health Center (PHC) in Larnoo for initial treatment. However, due to the severity of his injuries, he has been referred to the Government Medical College (GMC) in Anantnag for further medical attention.

This incident has raised concerns among locals regarding wildlife encounters in the area. Many have called for increased attention from the wildlife department to address the growing incidents of human-wildlife conflicts in the region.

Bear encounters are not uncommon in the Kashmir region, especially in rural areas near forests where bears often roam in search of food. Such incidents highlight the need for both preventive measures and prompt medical assistance in areas prone to wildlife interactions.

Authorities are urged to take necessary steps to mitigate such encounters and ensure the safety of residents, particularly in areas where human settlements intersect with wildlife habitats.

As the injured man receives medical treatment, local communities hope for swift action to prevent similar incidents in the future and safeguard the well-being of residents living in proximity to wildlife habitats.
