Trapped tiger released into forest

Sunday, January 25, 2009

Canning, WB (PTI): A Royal Bengal Tiger, which was trapped by forest authorities after it strayed into a village here, was on Sunday released into the Sunderban forests.

The male tiger was released in Dhuli Bhasani jungle of the Sunderbans, about 150-km from Deulbari village in southern Bengal where it was trapped, to prevent the animal from returning to the locality, forest officials said.

Vets tested the tiger and found it fit enough for release in the forest, they said.

The tiger was trapped last night by forest officials after the striped animal strayed into the village in in South 24-Parnagas a couple of days ago.

The Royal Bengal tiger was suspected to have strayed into the village from Chituri forest in the Sundarbans.
