LUCKNOW: A tiger was found dead in Kishenpur wildlife sanctuary near Dudhwa in Lakhimpur district on Sunday. A decomposed carcass was found lying in Kishenpur range of the sanctuary during the combing operation in the area. Locals suspect “poisoning” to be the cause of the death.

 

“The carcass seems to be about three-day old. It was swollen, severely infected with maggots and its rump region was scratched,” said Jaswant Singh Kalair, a wildlife activist. The dead tiger was around 4 years old. Dudhwa officers, however, could not be reached for a comment.
