A Poacher Once, He Protects The Forest Now

He used to kill wild animals for a living. Today he is a field officer with the Wildlife Protection Society of India. 🐅🔫✋ The remarkable story of Anil Krishna Mistry comes from the lush forests of the Sundarbans. With thanks to Mongabay-India.

    Congratulations Brut.India for this superb posting about SUNDERBAB and the features of Biodiversity of SUNDARBANS. Really a great matter of joy to see that Brut.India has a keen interest in the life related matters of all including animals and forests. I visited SUNDARBANS when I was a very child with my parents and that may be 45 years ago. While we stayed there at a house then in the deep of night we could hear roaring of tigers clearly. The fearful and frightening roaring really made us fearful. But the residents of the house would say that tigers are in the far away distance so don't be afraid of the roaring tigers. However thanks Brut INDIA. My BEST WISHES for this magnificent collection and posting to enrich us with facts and figures as well as data. 17.319.((Liked and admired by ""NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC CHANNEL ""NEWSFLARE OF LONDON ""NDTV ""TATA SKY ""GOLDEN NOTES ""SOUND PASTA OF INDIA ""AMAZING ANIMALS LIFE TOP FAN ""DIGITAL ANGEL TOP FAN ""Liked and admired by thousands Facebook friends across the world)).

    I SALUTE YOU,I live in an area where one would have A bear coming through our town, their land is taken away by these selfish builders ,this was bear country,so they have no where to go but look for food,We are not suppose to put food in bins out until garbage day.. but HUMANS anytime,so it draws the bears,and what happens again Humans will confront them the bear will chase and what happens then THE POOR BEAR GETS KILLED We had a black bear come thru our yard every year,sometimes she would have her cubs with her,We would watch her walk through and she would look up at us and carry on walking,have not seen her for 2 years now,,Humans are destroying WILDLIFE,for fun,and it annoys me,I even get annoyed when one sees people here taking their kids out to show them how to shoot wildlife ,they must not say its for food,as there are plenty of supermarkets around,they kill for TROPHIES,AND TO HAVE A HEAD MOUNTED ON THE WALL,Sorry that is how much I dislike people killing our poor Animals,again I SALUTE THIS GENTLEMAN FOR WHAT HE IS DOING
