|Nilagi by Teerath Singh|
Unlike the Black Buck and Indian Gazelle which belong to the genus antelope Nilgai is widespread and abundant. The animal is considered sacred by Hindus hence spared from hunting. Nevertheless conflict with man is a severe problem as it raids the agriculture fields all over its area of existence.
In MP the animal can be seen in Kanha Tiger Reserve at Sarhi Zone. It can also be seen at Bandhavgarh, Pench, Panna, Nauradehi and other tiger reserves and WLS in Madhya Pradesh.
