Heavy rain stalls tiger-tracking operation in Pilibhit

LUCKNOW: Incessant rain has stalled the tiger-tracking operation in Pilibhit. The forest department has stopped combing in the area due to flooding. At least two man-eating tigers are on the prowl in Pilibhit. The forest officers are yet to localise the big cats.

 

 

“We have set up cages and are tying baits to lure the big cats,” said divisional forest officer, Pilibhit, AP Sinha. The forest division has reported several man-eating incidents in the past.
