Growing human intervention in the forest area is now becoming the cause of his death. The latest data from the Ministry of Environment shows that in the last five years, as many as 2,529 people have lost their lives in elephant attacks.

Simply put, more than one person dies in an encounter with elephants every day in the country.

Similarly, between 2016 and 2020, 200 people died in tiger attacks. Maharashtra alone accounts for most human deaths at 54, while 51 people were killed in Uttar Pradesh and 44 people were killed in West Bengal. According to experts, due to increasing human population near forests and due to lack of food and water, wild animals like elephants and tigers are turning towards human settlements. As a result, both humans and animals are losing their lives.

It has also been seen many times that when the wild animals entered the human settlements, due to fear and fear, man did not show any hesitation in killing that animal.

According to the Ministry of Health data, there has been a tremendous jump in snake bite cases across the country. In 2018, 1,64,031 people were bitten by snakes, while in the year 2019 this figure has crossed 2,20,000. In 2018, 885 people died due to snake bite.

The highest number of 609 deaths due to snakebite occurred in West Bengal between 2016 and 2018. During the same period, 365 people died in Odisha, 319 in Uttar Pradesh, 249 in Madhya Pradesh and 230 in Andhra Pradesh. In the capital Delhi, 7 people could not be saved after the snake bite. Other than the government data, the report of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene tells a different story. According to this, most people in the world die in India due to snakebite and out of 1 lakh people who die every year in the world, 46,000 are Indians.

These deaths occur because people do not get medical facilities after a snake bite. On a large scale, instead of treating people, Aghori and Tantrikas make them flicker. If you compare India with America, then there are about 8,000 cases of poisonous snake bite every year, but there is not a single death due to medical facility.
