Tribune News Service
Dehradun, October 4
In a bizarre incident, seven cheetals were found dead on a railway line in the Ramnagar region of Kumaon division.

A pack of cheetals was run over by a train while they were crossing the Kashipur-Ramnagar railway line resulting in their death. Body parts of the cheetals were strewn all over at the site of the mishap.
According to Divisional Forest Officer Nishant Verma, rangers on patrol, came across the carcasses of the cheetals. After the post-mortem examination, the carcasses were buried.
It is the first-ever major incident involving a large-scale death of cheetals in the Ramangar region situated close to the Corbett National Park.
Wildlife conservationist AK Singh said while bigger animals often became causalty on the railway line, the death of smaller animals was rare. Hence, the death of seven cheetals was a matter of major concern for him.
Meanwhile, Verma said the Forest Department was now planning to register a case against the Railways and hold talks with the Divisional Railway Manager, Moradabad, to ensure the reduction in the speed of trains.
