Feral dogs have gone on a rampage, killing 55 chinkaras in just two villages of Rajasthan last month.
The fleet-footed chinkara, the Indian gazelle, is an ace sprinter and can outstrip any pursuit by predators. Found in good numbers in western Rajasthan, the chinkara is now under threat from man’s best friend—the dog.
The chinkara, along with the camel, is also the state animal of Rajasthan.
Fifty five chinkaras were reported killed by feral dogs in the first 20 days
