MYSORE: A male tiger, aged about six years, was found killed in a territorial fight, near Gadde Haadi of Nagarahole National Park in the district on Sunday.

The incident came to light when the forest personnel were on patrol on Saturday at 4 pm. According to them, the age of the deceased tiger is about six years. One eye of the deceased tiger had come out, supposedly due to the strong attack on its face by the other tiger.

Marks of deep paws and claws were found on the neck of the deceased tiger.

Since the nails and pelt were not removed from the carcass, it could be assumed that the tiger was killed in the territorial fight, not in any other fashion, said a Forest official.

Meanwhile, Principle Chief Conservator of Forest B K Singh (Wild Life), Project Tiger Director B J Hosamath, DCF Vijay Ranjan Singh, ACF Belliappa and others were visited the spot on Sunday.
