Tigress dies in Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve

STAFF WRITER 18:2 HRS IST

Bhopal, May 19 (PTI) A 30-month-old tigress today died in Madhya Pradesh’s Bandhavgarh tiger reserve due to internal injuries.

“The tigress was around 30 months old and possibly died after sustaining some internal injuries in a fight with another tigress over territorial rights,” Reserve Field Director C K Patil told PTI over phone.

The tigress was found dead at Tala range of the reserve in Umaria district.

Patil said some tourists spotted a limping tigress this morning.

He, however, ruled out the possibility of the tigress being hit by some tourists’ jeep in the reserve.

Before the feline died it entered a water body in Tala range, Patil said, adding there was no external injury mark on the tigress’ body.

Patil said the post-mortem of tigress will be done as per the guidelines of the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) tomorrow.
