Mangalore: Pilikula Gets another Female Tiger Cub

 

Daijiworld Media Network – Mangalore (SP)

 

Mangalore, Jan 19: The feline population in Dr Shivaram Karant Wildlife Park at Pilikula Nisargadhama here increased by one on Tuesday January 17, after tigress, Shambhavi, gave birth to a female cub.

 

With this, the number of tigers in the park has gone up to nine. It may be recalled that Netra, another tigress, had given birth to a male cub about two months back.

 

The cub is yet to open its eyes and the mother tiger is yet to start feeding it. Jayaprakash Bhandary, director of the park, said that it will take about 15 days for the cub to open its eyes and to begin feeding on its mother. He said that the park has, in the meantime, arranged to feed milk to the cub once every three hours.
