Dead tigress in Bandhavgarh, animal rights organisation demands probe


A dead tigress due to fire in the Bandhavgarh National Park leads to questions by the Federation of Indian Animal Protection Organizations (FIAPO). They urged the government to investigate the dead tigress and take necessary measures.

This animal rights organisation reminded forest officials of their responsibility. This responsibility is about the natural regeneration of the tiger reserve premises. It also is about the constant engagement with the local communities living nearby that went beyond consultations and abiding love for the creatures who inhabited the reserve.

Following the horrific incident, it is the responsibility of the government to take protective measures to save the tigers like bringing out guidelines of tiger safaris, reduce the pressure of the eco-tourism, protect habitats of the big cats and conserve its population, said FIAPO.
