Bhopal: A tiger from Ranthambore National
Park in Rajasthan has strayed into Madhya Pradesh, following
which a vigil is being maintained in the forest area of Morena
district.

"Rajasthan Chief Wildlife Warden H M Bhatia yesterday
contacted me and informed that a tiger from Ranthambore has
entered Morena district," Principal Chief Conservator of
Forest (Wildlife) H S Pabla said today.

"We are maintaining a vigil in Morena district," he said
adding that Madhya Pradesh forest ground staffers are yet to
spot the big cat.

The big cat had left Ranthambore some days back, after
which more than 100 Rajasthan forest officials were trying
hard to locate and bring it back, officials said.

A few days back, some evidence suggested that the striped
beast was in the ravines of Chambal in Dholpur district from
where it entered Madhya Pradesh, officials said adding
Dholpur and Morena are only 35 kms apart.
