CUTTACK: With the forest officials yet to trace the predator, the killing of sheep continues unabated in Niali.While three sheep belonging to Babuna Das and Sitaram Bhoi of Dahijang village under Bilasuni gram panchayat were killed, another sheep of Rama Bhoi was injured on Wednesday night.

Protesting the failure of the administration in curbing the menace, the villagers staged a road blockade on Salei-Bilasuni road. They also burnt tyres demanding adequate compensation.
The blockade was withdrawn after Bilasuni Sarpanch Mana Bhanjan Behera met the agitators and assured to put their demand before Cuttack Collector.

Acting on the request of State Government, Forest and Environment Department, a team of wildlife experts from Dehradun is set to visit Niali on Friday to examine the incident.
