3 cubs spotted in Ranthambore tiger reserve

JAIPUR: Spotting of three cubs comes as good news for the Ranthambore tiger reserve. At least three cubs were reportedly seen in the Khandar range of the forest by one of the forest ‘mitras’.

“One of the forest guards spotted three cubs. The cubs, according to him, are of the tigress T-30 in the Khandar area. But we are yet to confirm it. Trap cameras have been set up in the area to captures pictures of the tigress and her cubs,” chief wildlife warden A Choubey said.

“The area has been cordoned off and we are hopeful of capturing pictures of the cub soon.” Rajesh Gupta, additional director of the park, said.

The park has been seeing a baby boom since the past year when 17 cubs were born. However, officials warned that all the cubs are not alive still. Out of the 17 cubs, two have not been spotted in the recent days.

“The number of cubs in the past year was very good but we may soon see some migration when they become sub-adults,” warned Choubey.  http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/2012-02-22/jaipur/31086645_1_three-cubs-trap-cameras-khandar-range
