Tiger to be translocated in Panna reserve

Tiger to be translocated in Panna reserve

Bhopal, Mar 22 (PTI) With the lone tiger in Panna reserve yet to be traced, Madhya Pradesh forest officials are now planning to translocate a tiger in the reserve next month as the two tigresses shifted recently have no partner to mate.

“We are going to translocate a male big cat in the reserve next month,” Panna Reserve Director Lallan Choudhary told PTI.

Evidence of some big cat, possibly a tiger, has been noticed in the areas close to the reserve but not in the tiger reserve.

“We are verifying the evidences but at the same time we are also not giving up our plan to bring in a tiger in the reserve,” he added.

“We have already sought permission from the Centre to translocate a tiger in Panna from some other reserve in Madhya Pradesh,” he said.

A tiger was last sighted in the Panna Tiger Reserve in January, Choudhary said.

He said that the two tigresses translocated in Panna have adjusted in the reserve environs and were doing fine. PTI
