Koppal: The first-ever wolf sanctuary of the state will be coming up in the drylands of Bankapur in Koppal district of the Kalyana Karnataka region.

This will be the first wildlife sanctuary exclusively for wolves (Indian Grey Wolf) in Karnataka.

the Karnataka Wildlife Board will be meeting Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa to get his approval for a proposal to declare 822.03 acres of forest area as ‘Bankapur Wolf Sanctuary’.

Melkote in Karnataka is said to have housed a wolf sanctuary that was reportedly set up by the royals of Mysuru. However, there has been no documentation of wolves in the region for over a decade, according to sources in the state government.

The proposal notes that grey wolves inhabit the dry grassland regions of Deccan Plateau in pockets and prey on blackbucks and other herbivores.
