Gir Lions Under Attack

News
Around 23 lions from Semerdi in Gir National Park, Gujarat have died in less than three weeks. Forest officials claim that the outbreak of the canine distemper virus and tick-borne babesiosis (a disease caused by microscopic parasites that infect red blood cells) is the main cause of death. Canine distemper is a viral disease that impacts a large number of wild animals, as well as cats and dogs. As an immediate measure, Gir authorities have moved 31 lions to an animal care centre and have kept them in isolation. A survey in all the other parts of the park was conducted and it was concluded that all the other lions are clean and safe. Around 80 Gir lions live in the Semerdi area of the Dalkhania range.
