SRINAGAR: To avoid man vs wild conflict, orchardists in North Kashmir have been advised to dump leftover apples in pits.

The instructions have been issued by the Wild Life Department following the presence of a black Bear in the north Kashmir area. Wildlife Warden North Division asked the orchardists to dump apple leftovers in pits to prevent black bear attraction for the safety of people.

“Black bear has an incredible sense of smell & use it to locate food. The scent of fruits attract black bear thus all the orchardists are hereby requested to dump the leftover apples in pits to prevent the attraction of black bear in their respective areas for the safety of people,” he tweeted
