Villagers adjacent to the Chitwan National Park in East Nawalparasi are encountering difficulties in safeguarding their crops from wild animals. Due to the intrusion of wild animals, many residents have left their fields barren. So, the arable lands surrounding their homes are turning into grazing ground. Maya Gurung from Kawasoti-12 has left three katthas of land uncultivated for the past two years. Despite her efforts, wild animals destroy the crops before she could harvest them. Gurung said, "We cultivate paddy, wheat, corn and mustard, but protecting crops from wild animals is a challenge, so we have opted to keep the field barren. So, we have decided to leave the fields uncultivated, even during the wheat planting season"
