Ratapani tiger gets killed by train


A Ratapani tiger was killed by a speeding train. This was in the Midghat area of Hoshangabad district on Sunday evening.

This was the third tiger to have been killed on the same track in the last five years. The NTCA-rules say that the carcass of the tigress will be disposed off after autopsy.

Activists are wondering why the railroads are not taking proper actions to safeguard the areas. Also the government is under attack. The Ratapani area should have been declared a tiger reserve as soon as possible.
