Four white-rumped vultures die of toxic intake

2023 Jun 24, 13:23, Kawasoti

It was found that four white-rumped vultures (Dangar Giddha) had died due to poisonous food at Kawasoti of Nawalparasi.

The four vultures were found dead on Tuesday near Kerunge stream of Kawasoti Municipality-3.

Vulture Conservationist DB Chaudhary said, "A jackal was also found dead nearby the place where the vultures had perished. Post mortem report has confirmed the death of the vultures from toxic intake."

The jackal might have died after consuming poisonous food and the vultures too died after they ate carcass of the jackal.

Chaudhary further shared earlier in February, five white-rumped vultures had died with similar reason, adding it was responsibility of all to conserve the engendered species of vulture. Urging all bodies concerned to be serious for the conservation of endangered vultures, Chaudhary said poison used to kill jackal and the banned drugs to alleviate pain in livestock have posed serious challenge before the vulture conservation.
