The arrest of three poachers, who were caught on cameras, nearly a fortnight ago in the Dandeli-Anshi Tiger Reserve has once again put the spotlight on wildlife poaching in the region.

According to information under the Right to Information Act, the reserve has seen a total of 25 poaching cases since 2009. Till June 2015, three cases have already been reported; while 2014 saw six cases.

The poachers have not targeted tigers, but animals such as gaur, wild pig, sambar, barking deer, which are prey species to larger carnivores in the region.
