The protected blackbucks (Antilope cervicapra), at Krishnasar Conservation Area (KCA) in Bardiya, mid-western Nepal are in danger due to poaching and more seriously by leopards. Within the past one month, six blackbucks were killed by leopards while about 40 blackbucks were killed by flood in August, last year. Similarly, tigers in Kanchanpur districts are also in danger as they are being poached for their bones and hides. One Indian poacher was caught by the district police recently and seized tiger hide eight feet long and 2.3 inch wide, 19 kg bones and two pistols.
