  • While the forest laws deprived people of their customary rights to hunt, hunting of big game became a sport.

  •  Under colonial rule, the s cale of hunting increased to such an extent that various species became almost extinct.

  • The Maharaja of Sarguja alone shot 1,157 tigers and 2,000 leopards up to 1957. A British administrator, George Yule, killed 400 tigers. Initially, certain areas of forests were reserved for hunting.

So, the option (a) is correct.
