Man-animal conflict on the rise in Kashmir Valley

Official data from Kashmir revealed that 124 black bears and 44 leopards perished between 2012 and 2020. The conflicts between people and animals contributed to several of these fatalities. At least 242 individuals have died and 3,528 people have been injured in this human-animal war in Kashmir over the past 14 years (from 2006 to 2020).
