Two more tigresses to be translocated to Panna
Bhopal: Two more tigresses will be translocated in Madhya Pradesh`s Panna Tiger Reserve next month.
"Two semi-adult tigresses will be brought from Kanha Tiger Reserve to Panna next month," Panna Reserve Field Director RS Murthy said.
These felines, between age group of 5-6, lost their mother few days after their birth in Kanha Tiger Reserve and have been reared in an enclosure there, Murthy said.
After these tigresses, one more tiger will be translocated in Panna, spread over an area of 543 sq km in eastern Madhya Pradesh, he said adding the date of tiger`s translocation will be finalised later.
Two tigresses - one feline from Bandhavgarh and another from Kanha were translocated in Panna on March 6 and 9 last year respectively. Besides, a tiger from Pench tiger reserve was also released in the wild of Panna in November last year.
One of the translocated tigresses in Panna gave birth to four cubs in May, but later two of them were found dead. Forest officials claimed that the cubs might have been killed by the tiger.
As per the plan to revive big cat population, four felines and two tigers in all are to be translocated in Panna.
