Wildlife lovers have a reason to cheer as cubs are found after 4 years
Wildlife lovers would cheer if they were to visit Daroji Sloth Bear Sanctuary, adjacent to world popular Hampi, today, for they will be able to see sloth bears bearing cubs on their back.
“I was very thrilled to see a mother bear with two of its cubs on its back. I am viewing this after a gap of almost four years,” said S.K. Arun, honorary district wildlife warden and wildlife lover, who was happy to share the experience with The Hindu.The sanctuary, which is the largest in Asia, is spread over 82.5 sq km and has a bear population of over 100.
Haven for birds
This apart, the sanctuary is also a haven for leopards, peacocks and wild boars, over 200 varieties of birds. It is a favorite spot for nature enthusiasts too.
Forest officers, who were concerned over cubs not being sighted earlier, are also pleased that breeding has been taking place.
