Kerala asked to protect farmers, crops from wild animals

Light of Truth

The Public Affairs Commission of the Syro Malabar Church urged the Kerala government to take immediate action to protect farmers, farms and livestock from wildlife attacks. “It is not in the interest of a civilized society to ignore the cries of farmers and their families who are losing their lives due to wildlife attacks,” said Archbishop Andrews Thazhath, chairman of the Public Affairs Commission of the Oriental Church.

“The increasing presence and invasion of wildlife is creating more crises to the existing miserable living conditions of ordinary farmers and the crisis in the agricultural sector. In the hilly areas, almost everything the farmers cultivate are destroyed by wild boar, elephants and monkeys.
