Odisha reopens white tiger safari

                                                                              The Hindu Business Line, Bhubaneswar, 5th June, 2013
 
The white tiger safari at the Nandankanan Zoological Park in Odisha, which was shut about a month ago for safety reasons, was reopened for visitors on Tuesday, an official said.

A large number of wildlife lovers had gathered at the gates of the safari which reopened at 9 a.m. "The number of visitors is likely to swell in the coming days," zoo assistant director Kamal Purohit said. The safari was closed after a seven year old Royal Bengal tiger walked into it on April 29. The decision to reopen it was taken after the big cat returned to the wild on May 31.

The pug marks of the tiger, which escaped from the safari after jumping over an 18-foot-high wire fencing, were found in the forest outside of the zoo, from where it had come, Purohit said.
