An eight year old tiger was killed in a fight with another tiger in the Bijrani range of Corbett national park. The Corbett warden Shivraj informed that a patrol team received information about a tiger’s carcass being spotted in the Fultal area.
The Corbett director Rahul and others reached the site. The warden informed that all the body parts of the dead tiger were found intact. The tiger found dead was a robust and strong male but the fight with another tiger was so severe that its jaw was broken and there were severe injuries on his body. Considering this, the Corbett administration has deployed a team to monitor the activity of the other tiger involved in the fight. Patrol on elephant-back has also been increased.
