A carcass of a tigress was found in the buffer zone of the Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve (TATR) in Maharashtra’s Chandrapur district, an official said today.
The carcass of the tigress identified as T-62, aged around eight to 10 years, was spotted on Sunday evening, the official from TATR said.
A post-mortem was performed in the presence of forest officials and samples were collected for testing to ascertain the exact cause of death, which could not be concluded immediately as the carcass was in a decomposed state, he said.
After necessary formalities, the big cat was cremated in the presence of all representatives and officials of TATR.
