A tiger which was seriously injured by poachers, died at Valmikinagar Tiger Reserve in Bihar’s East Champaran district, official sources said on Saturday.

“The seriously injured tiger died on Saturday, a day after it was entangled in an iron trap laid by poachers,” the chief conservator of forests, Valmiki Tiger Project told rediff.com.

He said that a team of forest officials were informed by local villagers that a tiger was seriously injured in a trap laid by poachers.

The tiger population is decreasing at an alarming rate in the Valmiki National Park, Bihar’s only tiger project.
