  • Abstract: This research paper explores the dynamics of human-blue bull conflict in the Jhalawar district of Rajasthan, India. The study aims to investigate the patterns of blue bull menace and the types of conflicts arising between humans and blue bulls in the region. Data was collected through surveys, interviews, and field observations. A sample size of 150 respondents was selected using systematic random sampling techniques. Findings reveal that habitat destruction, agricultural expansion, illegal grass collection, and overgrazing by livestock are significant contributors to the conflict. The paper suggests various mitigation strategies to reduce human-blue bull conflict, emphasizing the importance of stakeholder cooperation, government intervention, and community awareness programs.
