Tigers In Indian State Madhya Pradesh Need To Wait For New Protective House.
As the rehabilitation and re-settlement issue of 30 villages in the buffer area of the Madhya Pradesh’s Ratapani Wildlife sanctuary — which is all set to be declared as tiger reserve — lingers on, around 12 big royal cats frequently straying out of the 900 sq km of the protected area will have to wait for some more time to get the designated home.
However, the delay has left them vulnerable to human-animal conflict and poaching, which the State is already witnessing. Till this date this year, 23 tigers have died in the State.
Due to resistence within the Madhya Pradesh government tigers in this Indian state now already wait for 11 years to get to their new homes.
Nearly 80 tigers were reported dead in the past one and a half years in Madhya Pradesh, which is a strong signal that the government needs to give the thumbs up soon.
