NGO Purchases Buffalo to Protect Tiger

A local NGO Vivekanand Environment Awareness Brigade stepped into purchase a female buffalo for a poor dhangar family from Keri in Sattari taluka as part of its campaign to save the tiger.
The family of Sai Kalu Pingale from Keri solely depend upon their cattle for their survival and this was badly affected when a wild cat, believed to be a tiger, killed her buffalo whose milk used to keep their home fires burning.
Sai Kalu Pingale approached the government for compensation but it was denied on grounds that her buffalo was killed by a wild cat in the wild life sanctuary. In order to help Sai Kalu Pingale earn her living Vivekanand Environment Awareness Brigade raised funds to purchase another female buffalo for her so that victims of wild cat attacks do not have negative opinion about the survival of these wild animals.
