When any deadly disease hits the wildlife, it becomes more toxic and dangerous because such harmful viruses communicate their antigen from one animal to the other. Wildlife sanctuaries where we found fauna residing in the same territory are now in trouble. If you have a ticket from Gir National Park Booking counter, you can easily see the vicinity of the jungle.

Three years of continuous strolling of the deadly disease to the endangered Asiatic lions in Gir National Park had left us in an excellent thought for hunting new destinations to help booming pride roam free. With a fold of skin along their bellies, the big majestic cats are slightly smaller than their African cousins, were found widely across southwest Asia some decades ago.

Hunting and human encroachment are responsible for the steep decline of these Asiatic Lions, which are now found only in a wildlife sanctuary in the Junagadh district of the state of Gujarat. But with the great effort of the forest department, it has shown a massive increase in the population of these big cats. But unfortunately, a severe harmful virus ruined their population. The canine distemper virus was detected among dozens of the royal beasts, killing at least 11 of them. This had disheartened many wildlife lovers who come to Gir Forest to see a single glimpse of the majestic lions.

Our government has taken some significant steps for the treatment of these lions whenever needed. Vaccines have been introduced to control these deadly diseases; every animal in the park has been given three doses, followed by a booster shot. Cattles and dogs are suspected of the disease carrier; vaccines are also being imported for other countries to make their existence alive in our nation. As per a survey conducted in Gir Forest in 1993, an outbreak of canine distemper virus killed a third of its 3,000 lions. Seeing these huge losses, the forest officials started to relocate

lions to other parts of the country, which suited their habitat, and they could roam freely in their natural habitat. With the help of radio collars, the forest guards track the lions, who wander around the village searching for their most loved food, Cattles, and goats.

To stop this disease from spreading in the other parts of the Gir Forest, the first officials are not allowing any tourists to visit the park. They asserted that the virus is hazardous and can be spread to humans during their jungle safaris. Gir Safari Booking has been closed, and no tourists are currently allowed in the park!
