Abstract: "A raging debate continues between social and wildlife scientists in our country on the relocation of people from parks to decrease conflicting interests of wildlife conservation and the local people. The goal of such relocations is to enhance the conservation of threatened species like the tiger. Another facet of the same issue which is as important but not usually considered is of animals creating problems to human lives in man-modified landscapes. The common method of dealing with the latter is the relocation of the animals causing the problem."
