Tigress, cub found dead at Bandhavgarh
A 10-year-old tigress and its cub were found dead in the Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve on Saturday. According to sources, the autopsy suggested that while the tigress had died three-four days back, the cub died possibly on Saturday. Poisoning has not been ruled out as the cause of the deaths, an official said. Search operations by elephant patrolling teams are underway to locate the remaining three cubs of the tigress. The reserve has lost six tigers over the last six months. Sources said that there has been an increase in attacks on human beings in villages around the park. This increase in man-animal conflict could be the reason for these recent tiger deaths.
