Talking on the issue, Forest and Environment Minister Gajendra Singh Khimsar noted that the rise in population of leopards could be one of the reason behind increase in the conflict between man and animal. He claimed that the government is making all efforts to avoid such conflicts where villagers are forced to kill animals in their self defence.

We have launched one of its kinds ''Project Leopard'' to increase prey base so that animals do not stray out for food and water. Under the project, boundary wall work will finish in next two months in Jhalana Forest Reserve in Jaipur," Khimsar told PTI. As per the wildlife census reports of past two years, the leopard count has increased from 434 in 2015 to 508 in 2016.

Having said that, according to many wildlife activists it is the depletion of natural prey base in forest areas that had led to the shifting of wild animals towards killing of livestock.

"The forest department has not made appropriate arrangements such as water and prey base. Animal population is increasing so animals have started moving into habitations and agriculture fields in search of food and water," said People For Animals (PFA) state president Babu Lal Jaju.
