Bhopal: A tigress on Wednesday died at Tala range of Bandhavgarh tiger reserve in Umaria district in eastern Madhya Pradesh.

"The tigress was around 30 months old and possibly died after sustaining some internal injuries in a fight with another tigress over territorial rights," Reserve Field Director C K Patil said on phone.

He ruled out the possibility of the tigress being hit by some tourists' jeep in the reserve.

The limping tigress was spotted by some tourists, he said adding it even roared at some tourists in the morning, he said.

Before the feline died it entered a water body in Tala range, Patil said.
