Article Summary   by:anil ekbote

Obviously the new guest doesn’t like his new home in the Indira Gandhi Zoological Park of Vishakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh State of India. He makes his displeasure and anger evident through aggressive movements. The guest is a beautiful black wild bison. It had strayed into a village in the nearby Rajahmundry district and had injuries to several villagers. With some difficulty the villagers caught the wild bison and in the third week of March 2007 handed it to the zoo. This male bison is five years old, has a strong muscular body and weighs over 100 kg. He has a distinctive dorsal ridge and large dewlaps that make him look awfully powerful. The new wild bison did not like other male bisons of the zoo. It constantly entered into fights with them. So he is now kept in a separate enclosure. The zoo keeper says, “We have to be very careful while feeding him. You won’t realise that the animal has come near you until he attacks you from behind.” The zoo officials are having a harrowing time with the new bison. Because of his wild genes, the new bison will need some time to be tempered and get used to the presence of other male bisons in the zoo’s enclosures. The curator of the zoo, B. Vijayakumar explains how the bison could have had landed in the village.  Large scale destruction of habitat is the primary cause of such wild animals straying into human habitats. Most people become nervous and afraid on seeing the lost animal. They beat  and scare the animal, which, in turn, get more aggressive and unpredictable and tries to defend himself. Because of its size and strength a bison becomes quite dangerous when wounded or angry. Even a tiger avoids such wounded and angry bison.
