15 more deer carcasses recovered from Sundarbans

The number of dead wild animals are on the rise in the Sundarbans due to the rampage of cyclone ‘Remal’ that swept over the country’s coastal districts.

Forest officials have recovered 15 more deer bodies from different areas of the Sundarbans.

Earlier, the forest officials recovered 39 deer and one wild boar carcasses. As a result, a total of 56 deer carcasses and one wild bear, so far, recovered, Mihir Kumar Doe, Conservator of the Forest (CF) department in Khulna circle confirmed the figure today.

The violent storm destroyed massive infrastructures, huge trawlers and numerous trees, washed away water basins and intruded saline water into over 80 sweet water ponds, destroying the abode of the wild animals, said the forest officials.
