Paradip, June 26 (LocalWire): A deer was found dead at the proposed site of Plastic Park today. It is being suspected that the deer was attacked and killed by dogs.
Forest Department officials led by Kujang forest range officer Pratap Mohanty reached the spot and sent the carcass for autopsy.
Forest officials said the deer might have strayed from the local Tanda forest in search of food.
Earlier this month, seven deer were killed by a passing train while they were crossing the railway line to local paddy fields.
Five deer were trapped by villagers. Shortage of grass and drinking water in the forest force the animals to stray to localities.
