The gods seemed to have answered the prayers held at Bannerghatta Biological Park (BBP) on Wednesday. Two tigers — Arya and Minchu — who were in a critical condition, are improving and responding to the treatment given to them.
They are, however, still not out of danger. Another pleasing development of the day came when Yashodha, the safari tigress who was reported to be ill along with her two cubs, was found to be not affected by the salmonella bacteria.
The condition of all under-treatment tigers was improving, said Dr BC Chittiappa, assistant director, veterinary services, BBP.He said that medication would continue for another two days to prevent the infection from recurring. Tigers Anu, Minchu, Inchara, Gowri, Arya, Raja, Rani, Kalpana Chawala, Lava and Yashodha and five cubs are being treated.
