Conflict between humans and animals are major problem in many parts of India. The damage and destruction caused by a variety of animals to human property and sometimes to human life is a real and significant danger to many human communities. With the animals often killed, captured or otherwise harmed in retaliation, these conflicts are one of the main threats to the continued survival of many species. One of the main reasons for this conflict is increasing human population and the continued loss of natural habitats.
The research study involves the critical analysis of Wild Life Protection Act, 1972 to solve the problem of conflict between human and animal specifically Leopard. The reason to select the Leopard as the focus of study is that leopard & human conflict is common in the most part of India. In the last decade, leopard conflict had reached serious levels with 560 cases of leopard attack in Uttarakhand State (in the northern part of India) and 240 in Maharashtra State (India). In Himachal Pradesh (a State in Northern India) 133 incidents have been reported in last three years.
