The local administration of Sunal village in Udhampur has requested the Jammu and Kashmir Government to offer sufficient infrastructure for tourists rushing in to see the peacocks of the region.
Also, it has urged for an enclosure for Indian peafowls (peacocks) as their population has risen dramatically in the Udhampur forest area.
To quote Sarpanch Sunal Panchayat, “There are many peacocks in my panchayat. People feel very happy seeing peacocks spread their feathers. Peacocks do this, especially in the rainy season.”
“Many people come here to see the peacocks. Since last six years the population of peacocks here has increased considerably,” she further said.
“It is very beautiful to see peacocks spread their feathers. People far away from Sunal come here to see this. There is not even a proper place for tourists to sit and no enclosure for the peacocks,” she said.
“We appeal to the district administration and government to set up an enclosure to protect the peacocks,” she highlighted.
