After a string of tiger deaths – 14 so far this year – good news from the forests of Madhya Pradesh. As many as 11 tiger cubs have been sighted in the past week – five in Panna Tiger Reserve, and three each in Nauradehi and Ratapani sanctuaries.
In Nauradehi sancturay, spread over Damoh and Saga districts, forest staff are cheering the first tiger births in years. It’s the first litter of Radha and Kishen, who where translocated from Kanha and Bandhavgarh national parks. The furry trio was spotted prancing about on May 9, said officials. They are considered so precious that armed policemen have been posted nearby to protect them.
