Big cat found dead in Valmiki Tiger Reserve

STAFF WRITER 13:39 HRS IST

Bagaha (Bihar), Mar 12 (PTI) A tiger was found dead in a ditch at the Valimiki Tiger Reserve (VTR) in West Champaran district.

The carcass was found yesterday at the reserve, the only one in the state which has around 13 big cats according to the last census in 2006.

The tiger could have been poisoned, Junail Ali, an official of the Madanpur Forest Range, said.

“Nothing is clear now and only a post-mortem report will reveal the truth,” he said.

Senior officials, including VTR Director J P Gupta, were making investigations into the matter.

In 2008, a tiger had died in the VTR when a trap was placed by poachers.
