Two tigers ‘killed’ at Ranthambore National Park

247

After two tigers have been found dead at the Ranthambore National Park, forest officials are suspecting that the two died in a territorial clash with a third tiger.

The officials said postmortem of the tigers will be done later today to find the cause of their death. The tigers, aged year-and-a-half, were the litter of tigress T-79. They were found dead at Aanwad-ki-Khad of Swai Man Singh Sanctuary in the park late yesterday.

Field Director of the RNP, Y.K Sahu and other forest department officials said the carcasses have been kept at Kundal Naka near Rajbagh Choki of RNP.

The tiger population is nearly 70, including cubs and sub-adults. The population is almost double the capacity of a national park as a tiger demarcates 10-12 sq km area as its territory where it does not allow a rival to enter, forest officials said.
