Grand plan to repopulate Odisha tiger reserve comes to a naught


The grand plan to repopulate Odisha’s Satkosia Tiger Reserve has come to a naught with Sundari, one of a tiger pair, set to be sent back to Madhya Pradesh.

A team of veterinarians from the Kanha Tiger Reserve is likely to reach Satkosia with a special van on Sunday to take back Sundari, which has been kept in a special enclosure deep inside the Satkosia forest.

The return of tigress is taking place after several communications among the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) and the Madhya Pradesh and Odisha forest and environment departments.

An official said the health of the tigress would be checked before it is allowed to be transported.
