CHIKMAGALUR: Tiger census in Bhadra wildlife sanctuary is going on without any impediment. Footprints of tigers have been spotted by the volunteers while walking in the forest.
A team has found the big cat’s pug marks and another team has collected its scats. The 37 teams led by the Bhadra wildlife deputy conservator of forest, Vijayamohanraj, are making efforts to find signs of the big cat and other predators like leopards, sloth bears and doles.
Each team has been provided with a forest front line staff in all the four ranges of Bhadra wildlife sanctuary. Monday onwards they will begin walking on transact lines and enumerating herbivores and also assessing the status of the flora. The tiger assessment will come to an end on January 27.
