The Great Himalayan National Park (GHNP) authorities have a reason to cheer. A team of forest officials that visited the park a few days ago spotted a rare species of musk deer.
RS Patiyal, director, GHNP, Kullu, said the team was here to assess the presence of rare species of animals in the area and during that period, it noticed two musk deer at Gumsrao.
He added that the presence of the rare species of deer in the area was a good sign.
The GHNP authorities are unaware of the exact number of musk deer in the national park having numerous flora and more than 375 fauna species, including 31 mammals, 181 birds, three reptiles, nine amphibians, 11 annelids, 17 mollusks and 127 insects. They are protected under the strict guidelines of the Wildlife Protection Act-1972, which is why any sort of hunting is not permitted.
