Salman, a 12-year-old Jaguar will be soon transported from Delhi back to his old roots in Kerala. Reason? Well, he turned out to be too fat to breed.

The officials at the National Zoological Park, Delhi, had borrowed the Jaguar a year ago with a hope of pairing him up with a lone female Jaguar in the zoo. It is reported that the zoo officials' efforts went in vain as Salman was interested only in food and not in mating.

Following the failed attempt, the zoo officials are now returning the 'too fat to breed' Salman back to Thiruvananthapuram Zoological Garden.
