Tiger found dead in forest at Seoni; two detained


A decomposed carcass of a tiger was found in a forest in Madhya Pradesh’s Seoni district on Saturday and two persons have been detained in connection to the death, a forest official said.

The five-day-old carcass was found in a pit in the forest of Gorakhpur area in the morning hours, divisional forest officer (DFO) Surendra Kumar Tiwari said.

Prima facie, it appears that the eight-year-old feline may have died due to electrocution after coming in contact with wires laid in the area, the official said.
