Bhopal: Two more tigresses will be
translocated to Panna Tiger Reserve in Madhya Pradesh in
November as part of an ambitious tiger revival plan, an
official said today.
"Two more tigresses from Kanha National Park will be
translocated to Panna next month. "These felines are semi-wild
given the fact that they were reared by humans as their mother
died shortly after giving birth," Panna Reserve Field Director
R S Murthy said.
The tigresses are aged five to six years, Murthy said.
At present, the Panna reserve, spread over an area of
543 sq km in eastern Madhya Pradesh, has two translocated
