OST Bureau
Forest officials have seized carcasses of three wild bears who were reportedly poisoned to death from Toranipokhari village in Odisha’s Keonjhar district, officials said today. 
Forest officials suspect the three bears, a mother aged about 20 years and her two offsprings (a male and a female) of about 3 to 4 years, were poisoned to death by locals and the bodies were found last evening. A probe has been ordered into the incident.
Local activists said bear attacks are quite frequent in the area and this appears to be a fall out of the man-animal conflict.Four bear attack cases have been reported in the locality in the last few months, locals said.
