India | Government weighs relocating villagers out of wildlife sanctuary after tiger killings

Valpoi: The killing of four tigers near Golavli village in Sattari taluka has put the man-animal conflict back in spotlight and brought to light the challenges faced by 25 tribal families in Surla, Golavli, Satre and Bandirwada in the taluka in a remote settlement inside the Mhadei Wildlife Sanctuary.

The government is planning to relocate the villagers. But, according to a forest official, the tribal families would be relocated by utilising a special fund sanctioned by the state government.
