Third dead tiger

Third dead tiger found in Madhya Pradesh


A tiger was found dead in the buffer zone of the Bandhavgarh reserve in Madhya Pradesh, which took the number of tiger fatalities reported in the state to three within a week, an official said on Saturday.

The decomposed carcass of the tiger was found near a drain in the buffer area on Friday, Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve’s field director Vincent Raheem told PTI over phone.

“As the carcass was highly decomposed, the tiger’s tongue and an internal organ were sent for testing to ascertain the cause of the death. The report is awaited,” Raheem added.
