With the debate over controlled culling of animals declared vermin intensifying, this Rajasthan farmer says the nilgais have been a menace
Mahesh Dan, 50, farmer from Jalore, Rajasthan speaks on the recent debate of culling animals such as Nilgais who have been declared 'vermin' by the state.
1. What is the extent of damage the nilgais have done to your crops?
It is a very serious problem. If nilgais manage to enter a field full of crops, they do not leave anything behind. Even barbed wire fences have failed to stop them. So, unless you have the money to get the fences electrified, these animals damage not only your crops but also the fence.
2. What, according to you, is the cause of the problem?
