Tiger cub spotted in Sariska Tiger Reserve
Jaipur: A tigress in Rajasthan`s Sariska Tiger Reserve has reportedly delivered a cub.
On Tuesday, the tigress and the cub were captured on camera. This is encouraging news, Minister of Forest and Environment Bina Kak said here.
The tigress has been spotted at Kalighati and Slopka areas of the sanctuary. Wild life officials are trying to secure more photographs of the animal.
The Sariska reserve now has five adult tigers, of which three are females and two males. With a cub spotted now, the total number is now six.
In 2004-05, the forest department and the Rajasthan government faced all-round criticism over the disappearance of tigers from Sariska.
The state government then decided to relocate tigers from the Ranthambore National Park in Sawai Madhopur district to Sariska.
The Sariska reserve, originally a hunting preserve of the erstwhile princely state of Alwar, was declared a wildlife reserve in 1955. It got the status of a National Park in 1979.
