State has power to kill creatures that pose danger to human life and property – Bhupender Yadav

Wayanad: Union Forest Minister Bhupender Yadav has said that the state has the authority to deal with wildlife attacks that are threatening human life and property. According to Section 11 of the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972, the State is empowered to deal with wildlife that poses a danger to humans.

In Wayanad, the minister said that the central allocation of 10 lakhs is given to those killed in wild animal attacks and the state can increase it if it wants. They have the right to capture, drug and kill animals. So we should be ready to protect the farmers of Wayanad and their crops by using Section 11 of the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972 properly. – said Bhupender Yadav.

The Kerala government has repeatedly said that the central laws will be blocked despite the people’s repeated demands to remove or kill the wild animals that are a constant nuisance. The minister replied when this question was repeated today. However, if it is an animal like a tiger, central permission will have to be sought, he said.
