The Assam forest department has asked the army to dismantle the short firing range near the Lama camp in Kalamati. Sonai Rupai was declared a wildlife sanctuary in 1998. The Forest department has written twice since the beginning of the year to the army and though there was a reply, the response has not been suitable. The area is home to a sizeable Elephant population, as well as leopards, gaur, barking deer, sambar and a variety of birds.
