    Police investigating farmers for death of wild gaur near park

    An ongoing police investigation suggests that angry farmers might have shot dead a wild gaur, a species of cattle, whose carcass was found riddled with five gunshot wounds near a national park in Nakhon Ratchasima’s Wang Nam Khieo district earlier this week.

    The gaur was about 15 years old and weighed nearly one tonne.


    “The animal might have invaded their farm or eaten their crops,” Wang Nam Khieo Police Station’s superintendent Pol Colonel Meechai Kamnerdprom said yesterday.


    He said that if the guar had been killed by a hunter, its meat and horn would probably have been removed.

    Why's the cop got surgical gloves on? And where's his gun?

    Killings of two more gaurs prompt new investigation

    NAKHON RATCHASIMA province officials have pledged to solve conflicts between wild gaurs and local farmers after three animals were killed in Wang Nam Khieo district within a period of one week.

    The animals were apparently killed because they had roamed outside the forest and ate farmers’ crops.
    Local people in Ban Khao Phaeng Ma of Wang Nam Khieo reported yesterday that they had found two large gaurs dead in the forest near Khao Phaeng Ma wildlife sanctuary. Each full-grown adult weighed more than 1,000 kilograms.

    1000 kg. Stupid farmer. So it ate your crops and you got angry and shot it. I can understand that. Why waste the meat? You not only could have fed your family for a year, but got rid of the evidence too.

    More than likely a cop did it. Cops also farm outside of duty time. Obviously the police have easy access to rifles big enough to kill a large beast. Case closed.

    I was just being pragmatic about the meat and evidence . You're right, it would take more than a hand gun to fell one of those beasts unless you can get very very close and do a between-the-eyes shot.

    Gaur to be relocated after three animals killed amid farmer row

    AUTHORITIES PLAN to solve the gaur overpopulation problem in Khao Phaeng Ma wildlife sanctuary in Nakhon Ratchasima by relocating some of the animals to a nearby forest.

    Local people, however, say they would prefer a fence to prevent encroachment by the wild animals as their crops had been destroyed and they had not received compensation from authorities.


    Nakhon Ratchasima Governor Wichien Chantharanothai yesterday revealed the plan to relocate some of the gaur population to the nearby Khao Phu Luang Forest to reduce the numbers in Khao Phaeng Ma Forest.


    The move was agreed at a recent meeting with related agencies to tackle the conflict between local farmers and the animals after three gaurs were killed in a single week.
