Crocodiles Escape Safari Park in Sindh: Safety Concerns Arise

The escape of crocodiles from the Safari Park near Deharki in Sindh and their subsequent entry into the Qazi Wah Canal has understandably caused chaos and concern among residents. The negligence on the part of park administration has led to this situation, posing potential risks to the safety of villagers, especially children and livestock.

Reports indicate that numerous crocodiles, both small and large, managed to leave the park and enter the canal, where they consumed villagers’ chickens. While the residents demonstrated resourcefulness by capturing a three-foot-long crocodile, the presence of larger crocodiles in the canal remains a significant threat.

Despite efforts by locals to seek assistance from the Wildlife Department, the response has been lacking, with only a retired wildlife employee offering help. The residents rightly emphasize the urgency of the situation and the need for swift action to capture and relocate all crocodiles from the canal back to the Safari Park.

The government must prioritize the safety of residents and take immediate steps to address this issue, ensuring that proper measures are in place to prevent such incidents in the future and to mitigate any potential risks associated with wildlife escape from parks and reserves.
