Setback in Sariska as translocated tiger found dead
Alwar: One of the five tigers
translocated to Sariska reserve to revive their population has
been found dead.
The carcass of the tiger was found last night,
Rajasthan Forest Minister Ramlal Jat said Monday.
He said injury marks indicate that the tiger might
have been killed in a territorial fight. However, the exact
cause of death will be clear only after a post-mortem.
The Sariska tiger reserve in Rajasthan lost all its
tigers by 2004-05, mostly to widespread poaching.
In a bid to revive tiger population in the reserve,
three tigers, a male and two females, were shifted from
Ranthambore reserve, also in Rajasthan, in 2008 and 2009.
However, they failed to produce any offspring and it
was later found that they were siblings.
After an intense genetic analysis, a tiger and a
tigress were translocated this year.
