Tiger killed in territorial fight in Kanha Reserve
Bhopal: A tiger was killed in a territorial fight with another feline in Madhya Pradesh`s Kanha Tiger Reserve, forest sources said on Thursday.
The two-and-half year old tiger sustained fatal injuries in the territorial fight with another big cat on March 11 in Kisli range of the tiger reserve, they said.
The young tiger was found abandoned when it was a cub, following which forest officials trained it in a protected environment to kill prey on its own. About five months back, it was released in the wild after being radio collared by the forest officials, sources said.
However, the young carnivore was killed by another big cat in a territorial fight, which is quite common among the tigers, they said.
The autopsy of the carcass was conducted in the presence of National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) and WWF representatives which confirmed death due to mutual fight and flow of excess blood, sources added.
