Tiger population increases in Sathyamangalam reserve forests

Erode: Population of tigers in Sathyamangalam reserve forest areas in the district has risen to 25 in 2012 as against 18 last year, a census by forest officials stated.

 

“According to recent wildlife census, there are 25 tigers inside the Sathyamangalam reserve forest areas”, District Forest Officer N Sathish told PTI here.

 

 

 

A large number of wild animals were noticed in Thengumarahatta in the forests as the Moyar River was flowing in the area and water would be available throughout the year, he said.

 

The Centre had declared Sathyamangalam forest area as Tiger Reserve, he said. He cautioned drivers of vehicles crossing Thengumarahatta road as movement of wild animals was high in the area.
