This is how animals are trying to cope up with the heat at Biological Park in Pilikula

As the temperature is soaring, animals including Tiger, Lion and Leopards at Dr Shivaram Karanth Biological Park in Pilikula are struggling to cope with the extreme heat. The staff at Dr Shivaram Karanth Biological Park in Pilikula have gone an extra mile to help the animals beat the heat.
Director of the  Biological Park Jayaprakash Bhanadry said they have ensured that water is easily available for the animals across the zoo. Fans have been recently fitted inside the enclosure.  Additionally 10 fans have also been kept outside the enclosures. The arecanut and coconut fronds have been placed in order to provide shade in enclosures which lack any natural protective shade. Sprinklers too have been installed outside the enclosures and water is being sprayed at regular intervals. This help to keeps the enclosures moist and cool. Water is sprayed on animals and birds twice or thrice a day to keep them cool. Watermelons are being given to the herbivorous animals. To ensure that the mammals are hydrated, tubs in all the enclosures are always filled with water. Concrete structures in enclosures where Small animals are kept have been painted white as white paint reflects the heat and ensures that the enclosures are cool. Plants near the enclosures also ensure cool breeze. Small water tanks filled with water regularly are installed at different locations. The Zoo is not facing water shortage as water is being lifted from River Phalguni with help of 25hp pumpsets. The water stored in four tanks is used for filling the ponds. In addition to this, there are five borewells on the premises of Pilikula, covering an area of 150 acres.
