LUCKNOW: Uttar Pradesh would soon have its third tiger reserve at Pilibhit, which would be the country's 45th tiger reserve.

A notification in this regard had been issued earlier this week, an official release said today.

Dudhwa Tiger Reserve was the state's first tiger reserve that came into existence in 1987, followed by Amangarh Tiger Reserve established in 2012.
