Missing tiger escalates tigresses’ migration fear

Madhya Pradesh Posted On Wednesday, April 15, 2009

Panna, April 15: Fear of migration of both tigress–brought at Panna National Park to increase feline population–escalates as the lone tiger in the Park is still untraceable since a month.

The park management, which is worried over the big cat’s absence, is keeping round-the-clock watch on the tigress, who were brought here from Kanha and Bandhavgargh Tiger Reserves.

Signals of the presence of a tiger in the Park were received before translocating the young tigresses but the big cat is not being spotted since a long time keeping the plan of increasing feline population in limbo.

A security team was constituted to monitor every activity of the radio collared big cats.

Reserve Field Director L K Choudhary said that normally both tigresses roam about 15 to 20 km daily and the stationed forest officials’ and range officers occupied in determining their locations.

Experts opined that translocation of a new tiger in the park is imperative in order to refrain the big cats from migration.
