BANGALORE: The Ministry of Environment and Forest has asked the state forest department to file a report explaining the circumstances in which wild animals, including three tigers, died earlier this week at the Bannerghatta Biological Park (BBP).

Principal Chief Conservator of Forests (Wildlife) B K Singh, who inspected the animals on Thursday, said four tigers had diarrhoea and they had been put on drips. He said they were looking for a stronger antibiotic for the animals.

Assistant Director of BBP Veterinary services, Dr B C Chittiappa, said the situation was under control and park authorities were conducting tests to ensure that the animals are not suffering from any other diseases.

BBP officials said all tigers were showing signs of recovery.
