The current heat wave has not spared the forests and its animals and they started intruding into the nearby villages in large numbers to rinse their throats. When contacted, the forest officers said that they had already spent Rs 2.73 crore this year to provide food and water to them. Meanwhile, the flora and fauna has been awfully affected due to desert conditions in the districts.. Birds and animals were reeling under the impact of a dry situation in Kavval forests in Adilabad district despite steps taken by the forest officers. As an alternative, the animals turned to villages but the hunters found it as a boon to kill them and fill their belly. But people concerned appealed to the forest department to save their lives. Forest officers said they have taken several steps to mitigate their suffering by digging small tanks, wells but they were all dried up as the water table reached rock bottom in the season. Contrary to the assurances of the forest officials animals were not able to survive the onslaught of the beaming Sun.
