CHITWAN: Two female swamp deer that were translocated from Shuklaphanta National Park (SNP) to the Chitwan National Park (CNP) have died. One of the deer died on the day they were translocated to the CNP while other one died the following day, according to the Director General of the Department of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation Man Bahadur Khadka. Extreme pressure due to the long hours of travel and scorching heat might be the cause for the death of sensitive cervids, assumed the CNP. It takes about 16-17 hours to translocate the animal. The translocation programme has been postponed for the time being because of excessive heat in the region. Moreover, the employees would be deployed  for the upcoming May 14 local polls, said the Information Officer at the CNP Nurendra Aryal. The translocation process of swamp deer had started from April 26 as per the government’s decision taken three years ago to release 25 swamp deer in the CNP. READ ALSO:
