KOCHI: In response to increasing incidents of wild animals entering populated areas and posing threats to human lives, the High Court has issued a directive urging the government to formulate a comprehensive plan to mitigate human-animal conflict. Justice Devan Ramachandran emphasized the urgency of addressing the issue, warning of future challenges if immediate action is not taken.

The court highlighted the adverse impact of such incidents on Kerala, particularly in the tourism sector, emphasizing the importance of prioritizing human life without resorting to animal killings. Georgie Johnny has been appointed as amicus curiae to assist in the matter.

Initially focused on wild elephant attacks, the court acknowledged the broader spectrum of wildlife encroachment into human settlements, necessitating government intervention and strategic measures to safeguard residential areas.
