Third tiger found dead near Corbett

A tiger was found dead on Saturday near the Corbett Tiger Reserve in Nainital district, the  third such incident in the area in a week. The carcass of the tiger was recovered  in a  decomposed state this morning  from  Hathi Danger in Fantoo range of Tarai West forest division, Corbett Field director Samir Sinha told PTI. It was traced after a foul smell in the area. An autopsy is being  conducted to ascertain how the big cat died, he  said.

The putrefying  carcasses of the big cats in all three intances suggest they died days before being  found, raising  doubts over the way patrolling is being carried out in the tiger landscape of Kumaon's tarai region, experts said. The population  of the endangered species in Corbett is estimated to be 172-200 and that in India 1,706.
