What is a Chinkara anyway!

A Chinkara is a little deerlike animal found in India - it's been in the limelight over the last couple of years largely because it's endangered and it's being constantly hunted and poached.. for some reason by Bollywood filmstars with 'Khan' somewhere in their names.

Salman Khan is probably the most famous of these Bollywood Chinkara hunters - he was convicted - well as best you can convict a Bollywood star in India - of poaching. Be sure to look at the Salman Khan Chinkara photo for a laugh!
