The Bandipur Tiger Reserve staff have arrested four men who were poaching herbivores in the tiger reserve at Boodikote in the Gopalaswamy Betta range.

The arrest of Kamala Kannan of Salem, Krishnan from Ooty, Bomma from Kaniyanpura and Manju from Shivapura has revealed once again that the Gopalaswamy Betta is vulnerable for the anti-wildlife activities.
